Community steps up for DIF Toy Drive

On Sunday, December 13th, the community and local administration came together to make sure the DIF’s “Toy Drive” was a success. Through this unity, the DIF was able to collect over 2000 toys, along with nearly 700 blankets and additional cash donations equal to just over $1000 USD.

Linda Pivac de Munro, President of the local office on Integral Family Development (DIF), detailed the DIF “Juguetón” was about to collect 2,663 toys, 681 blankets and $17,780 pesos.

“During this campaign,” she explained, “we called on civil society, businesses, and institutions who showed their tremendous solidarity in contributing toys, clothing, blankets, and cash, which will be distributed in upcoming days among community children living in vulnerable conditions.”

The event, which took over Plaza a la Madre from morning to early evening on Sunday, included music, numerous artistic performances, and a sampling of traditional Mexican fare.
