The spanish word for "life" is "vida", and that's exactly what Vida Vacations is doing: giving life to the communities of Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit.
The Vida Vacations group, the largest resort company in Mexico, has decided to give back to their citizens by supplying not only materials but also the manpower to spend a day doing much needed construction work, painting, and general repairs for the charity organizations of Banderas Bay.
An email was sent by PVAngels to the non-profit organizations to see who needed help and the response was an avalanche of needs. All the responses were submitted to Vida for their consideration.
After much deliberation by Vida, they decided on four varied organizations: Compassion for the Family (Banderas Bay Women's Shelter), PuRR Project No Kill Feline Rescue Shelter, Pasitos de Luz Day Care for Special Needs Children and Amigos de Bucerias/TerceraEdad Senior Citizen Facility.
There will be about 58 of our local citizens from Vida Vacations who will spend their day-off as volunteers working in the four chosen facilities.
Not only is the Vida staff donating their manpower for the day, they are coming out of their own pockets in supplying the materials to be used, such as a large amount of concrete block and providing professionals for proper installation at the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter facility.
The volunteers will show up on Monday, June 10, supplied with materials and equipment for the various projects.
Ray Dion of PromovisionPV will visit all the job sites on Monday for an inside view on the work being accomplished. The results and videos will be shared with our readers - coming soon.
We thank the Vida Vacations staff for their generous support of our community and give them a huge round of applause along with the "Good Guys" award.
