Toys For Tots

Toys For Tots distribution on January 7, 2013 in celebration of Three Kings Day in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  If you are a Photographer in Puerto Vallarta, it dosen’t get any better than this.  Over 8000 Toys were distributed on 8 different routes to communities throughout Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas, including the State of Nayarit.  Some groups were finished within a few hours and others took all day.  Our group was one of the all day groups.  We distributed toys to Schools along the Cuale River and then we went deep into the jungles to remote communities high up in the mountains.  We traveled several hours on bumpy, dusty roads to deliver Toys to as few as 15 children in some areas.  Once we arrived in the last community, that we could reach and return before dark, it was late afternoon and the schools had closed for the day.  We distributed toys to the children who were still around the schools playing.  Toys For Tots are sponsored by the Puerto Vallarta Navy League and the Marriott Casa Magna Hotel.  Events are held throughout the year to help raise money for this event.  The Marriott generously provides it facilities and covers the cost of the Grand Annual Fund Raising Banquet and 100% of all proceeds from this banquet go towards the purchase of Toys.    There are many other contributors who also help support this great program.
