Puerto Peñasco, Sonora. April 12, 2019.
Mayor KIko Munro presented Local Red Cross Coordinator Miguel Ángel Ibarra Lomelí with a 45,000 peso donation, marking the launch of the 2019 Red Cross fundraising drive, this year under the emblem “The Red Cross is Calling You.”
Joined in the Mayor’s office by Red Cross Administrator Faustino Reyes, Ibarra Lomelí detailed this year’s goal is to raise 653,000 pesos (about $37,000 USD). He encouraged the community to help the fundraising drive by contributing to the Red Cross, as this then helps the institution in being able to respond more immediately to those requiring assistance as well as for the local Red Cross to continue working in optimum conditions.
