As part of a broader “Pinta México” campaign to celebrate the 116th anniversary of Rotary International, several members of the local Rotary Club (CR Mar de Peñasco) picked up their paintbrushes to help paint the town.
Current club president Enrique Rodríguez Ramírez detailed in this case, the club focused on painting handicapped ramps and access points in different parts of the city. He explained shortly before Spring Break the group began by painting on the north side of the “La Milla” recreational complex, and then completed an additional 12 ramps in the malecon. In a second outing, the group completed an additional 15 ramps and access spots in the malecon.
The president of the local Rotary Club emphasized, in addition to their part in the “Pinta México” campaign and despite challenges due to the pandemic, the club has focused efforts this year primarily on helping with supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) at the local General Hospital, Red Cross, Fire Department, IMSS, ISSSTE, and Centro de Salud. The group has also donated medical supplies during this time to the Dialysis Unit as well as the Casa Hogar home for the elderly.
