Look at those smiles!

On Saturday, January 5th the children of the Families at the Dump (FAD) program received their toys, in time for Kings Day.  Traditionally, Christmas gifts are exchanged on Kings Day, to celebrate when the 3 kings brought gifts for baby Jesus.

Thanks to the VYC Toy Drive and help from volunteers and local companies, the party was a huge success!  In addition to VYC members bringing toys during the 3 week collection,

Starbucks in Nuevo Vallarta brought bags of toys and candy, donated and staffed hot chocolate distribution, and even sent Santa's Elf to help out.  Pizza Express, also in Nuevo Vallarta, brought and handed out enough pizza for 400 kids - that's a lot of pizza pie!

FAD thanks the many VYC members who helped make this such a success. Special thanks go to volunteer Shary Bowman for the photographs.
