[ARCHIVED] Help the children in our Sister City; Magdalena, Sonora, Mexico

The Town, and the Green Valley Fire District, and the Sahuarita Unified School 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.
