Sister City
Sahuarita - Magdalena

 Magdalena Resolution  
On Saturday, September 28th, during the annual Fiesta Sahuarita, officials from the Town of Sahuarita hosted a special ceremony to celebrate officially becoming ‘Sister Cities’ with Magdalena de Kino, in Sonora, Mexico. Magdalena, which is known as being one of the “pueblos mágicos”, (“magic cities”) in Mexico. A shared commitment to economic development, a sense of community, and celebrating what is special about each city, ignited the desire to enter into the Sister City agreement.

Help the children in our Sister City; Magdalena, Sonora, Mexico.

The Town, and the Green Valley Fire District have partnered to provide toys for some of the children in Magdalena.

The first toy delivery was made in early December, 2013 by Victor Gonzalez, Economic Development Manager for the Town, which was well received.

The toys were distributed, by Magdalena town officials.

To expand our donations, we would like to also collect gently used shoes for the children, to include sandals, tennis shoes, and specialty sports cleats.

The children of Magdalena put on a great parade in November 2013 that showcased their schools and the sports teams that they participated in; however, while watching the parade, it was obvious that many of the children did not have
adequate shoes for their sports.

April 30th is "Children's Day" in Mexico and the wife of Mayor Jesus Rodolfo Martinez Leal, Dr. Lupita Garcia, will distribute our donations on that day to the children.

Drop Off boxes are available in the Town Hall lobby, at the SUSD Administrative office and at any Green Valley Fire District station.
