With the arrival of the winter season in the hills and valleys of Puerto Vallarta, DIF, System for the Full Development of the Family, comes to the aid of the needy families of del Valle, la Aguacatera, Volcanes, Bosques del Progreso, la Floresta and Santa María Parte Alta.
Magaly Fregoso Ortiz, President of the Puerto Vallarta DIF System, visited marginalized urban colonies to deliver sweaters, scarves and winter clothes that were sent to DIF Jalisco, with the objective of supporting poor families who by their social status have no funds to buy warm clothing.
The team was headed by the operating Deputy Director, Homer Maldonado, and the director of the institution, Adolfo López, who visited different colonies to identify families with the greatest need, and then delivered warm clothes to approximately 600 families.
As every year, the institution of social assistance with the support of the State Government provides shelter, food and other household goods to support the economy of the families, so in this winter season, they are benefiting families by giving them clothing to keep them warm.
Sra Amparo Rodríguez of the Volcanes Colony received sweatshirts and sweaters for her three children, as well as a scarf for her father Don Antonio, and thanked the President of DIF for keeping the children warm as they head for school each day and how blessed they are to be chosen as one of the beneficiaries.
