Continuation of 'Action for Food' Program in La Cruz Depends on You

Connie & Landon Hollander - Amigos de La Cruz
August 16, 2013

This is an unfortunate message to have to send out, but there really aren’t a lot of options here.  

A little history: After 2 years of operation as Work for Food, starting last summer and culminating this past March, funding from both PEACE and Amigos de La Cruz was withdrawn due to financial strains within those two organizations.  This past May, we arranged with Fundación Punta de Mita to become the administrator of the program to handle incoming donations and outgoing payments. After a two month interruption, thanks to an anonymous donor we were able to get Acción En La Cruz back up and running - providing dispensas (food & provisions) to 18 local volunteers in exchange for their community work. This is the only program in La Cruz that offers a self-empowering means for residents to provide for their families.  

The problem is that with the exception of the one anonymous donation and the small amounts raised at our monthly benefit dinners, there have been no other donations. This program is 100% privately funded and depends on you, the supporters and enthusiasts of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle for its continuation. There is no group, association or organization backing this. We have no annual Charity Ball attended by society big-wigs and corporate sponsors. What we DO have is YOU.

We have to suspend the program once again until sufficient monies have been raised to cover at least one month’s operation (roughly $600 USD / 7,500 pesos).

The irony here is that the cost to run the program for a full year is less than $7,500 dollars which is really not a huge sum. Whether you're currently here in La Cruz, in the US, Canada or elsewhere, we ask you to please donate to help this important project continue. You can receive a tax-deductible receipt for your contribution; just follow the instructions.

Thank you in advance for your generous contributions.  Here’s hoping we can get Acción En La Cruz back on its feet quickly.
