Saturday the 10th of October Ines and I with the help of CW and Alex loaded up three vehicles full of clothing and food for victims of last weeks flash flooding event that
took the residents of Guaymas by complete surprise. Thanks to all those who donated items to the Athletic Club San Carlos. You will all be happy to know that the aid went directly to residents of Fatima one of the worst affected colonias of Guaymas. After contacting a volunteer for the Red Cross we were informed that there was going to be a truck distributing items in Fatima on the day that we planned on delivering the aide. So that worked out well. We were put in contact with the group which turned out to be working with Susana Corella Platt the recently elected federal diputado for Guaymas.
You know you have been in San Carlos too long when you start recognizing some of the clothing being donated! Like this shirt from the fishing yacht Salvaje!! You know who you are!! Someone got a great shirt! Thanks again to all those who donated and helped distribute the items. The people of Fatima were very grateful indeed and it always feels good to live in a community that helps its neighbors.
