We received an email from one of our readers at PVAngels that has been supporting our community by bringing down donated supplies from Calgary. Recently, she has been receiving more supplies than she can transport on her own.
Here's Dianne's email:
"I have been bringing medical supplies for several years to the Bucerias/Nuevo Vallarta area but I am getting too many supplies to bring on my own.
I have gauze, neck collars for the paramedics, catheters, small bp machines, glucose testing machines, over the counter type of meds such as ibuprofen, tylenol, vitamins and sometimes asthma inhalers.
I also have receiving blankets and sleepers and a few school supplies that I like to send.
There is cast boots and splints too.
I send hockey bags down with whoever will take it and I have someone who will distribute it to the paramedics and the clinics in the area. He will pick up the donations from the airport or the hotel where they are staying.
We have given donations to the Red Cross, Centro Salud in Bucerias, Sayulita and San Pancho. I am just looking for a few more people to bring the supplies down. Let me know if you can help me.
Can you help? Dianne's email is email@example.com.
We invite you to add your charity or supporting organizations' news stories and coming events to PVAngels so we can share them with the world. Do it now!
If you would like to donate directly to the non-profits in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, here are some suggestions you may want to consider to help our local communities in this time of greatest need.
