Volunteer Thursdays Continue

Supporting families in need during this past year has required us to modify our approach to mission efforts.  Friends of Cozumel hosts Volunteer Thursdays every week.  Island visitors, resident expats and locals interested in volunteering serve together in small teams.  Language and cultural differences are not obstacles.  There is a lot of pointing, laughing, guessing and learning as we work together. 

Examples of typical Volunteer Thursday projects and the local families who benefit . . .

April 1 - Prepared 50 despensas for local families
April 7 – 25 sets of filters and faucets were installed and checked for leaks prior to distributing water systems
April 8th – Additional despensas were delivered to families in need
April 8 – Delivered infant formula to a local mother
April 8 – A local senior citizen received clothing and personal hygiene products from the community closet
April 8 – a team prepares 300 ham and cheese sandwiches to distribute the following morning at Vida Abundante Church
