Eagles Wings Thrift Store Turns Trash into Treasures

Patricia Garcia - Impulso de Aguila
July 21, 2012

Eagles Wings, Impulso de Aguila, of Puerto Vallarta supports more than 30 organizations dedicated to social assistance, as well as promoting the inclusion in society of persons with physical disabilities.

There are many ways you can help. The Impulso de Aguila Thrift Store is the perfect place to send your household items that you no longer use. They have workshops where they train workers, including those with disabilities, in the repair and reusability of these items.

If you have items of furniture to donate and would like to see exactly where they go to and which families and/or local charities will benefit, Impulso offers an excellent service.

They are always in need of household items including towels, linens, microwaves, coffee makers, toasters, lamps, mirrors, window coverings, televisions, furniture and more.

They can arrange to collect the items and then take them to the non profit thrift store in Coapinole that receives the items and sends them out to needy families first (for free) and any that are not immediately needed are put on sale at low prices to benefit low income families in the area who are not able to afford new items.

The proceeds of these sales are used to benefit over 30 local charities that are affiliated with Impulso.

If you have items you would like to donate, please contact the Administrator, Cesar Sanchez, via email at cesar_sanchez7@hotmail.com.

They encourage you to visit the store and do some shopping while donating to those less fortunate.

The Impulso de Aguila Thrift Store is located in Lomas del Coapinole Colony, Francia #622 (at the corner of 21 de Marzo), Puerto Vallarta, telephone is (322) 299-4040. They are open daily from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm and on Saturday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.
