Cancun, Quintana Roo (August 20, 2015) — “The change in stock at the Sunset World hotel chain is always a good opportunity to contribute to the well-being of the community,” explained Iris Rivera, the Media and Communications Executive of Sunset World Resorts & Vacations Experiences hotel chain, during a donation of sheets, pillows and towels to the Nohoch Ná Children and Retirement Homes of the Municipal System for Integral Family Development (DIF) and to the Ciudad de la Alegría Bread and Blanket Shelter.
In addition, during the donation that took place in the Ocean Spa and Sunset Marina hotels, Miss Rivera spoke about Sunset World’s commitment with society, while Benito Juárez DIF Director Mariana Dávila Goerner stated that these donations are very helpful because they allow us to aid people facing difficult situations. “The supplies we are receiving today are allocated for the children’s assistance home and the retirement home. They are always in need of supplies. We frequently receive aid requests from the DIF; when homes have burnt down, people need everything,” she stated.
Martha García, Coordinator of the Ciudad de la Alegría Bread and Blanket Shelter said in turn that they always gladly welcome the altruistic donations they get from companies in Cancun. “We always ask companies to donate anything they are no longer using that is in good conditions; we always have people that come from squatter areas asking for our support. That does not mean to bring us things that are broken and can no longer be used, it is important for donations to be useful,” she emphasized.
Martha García added, “It is very important for us to offer something decent to people; things that are not stained, broken or anything like that. Some donations are sold for $5 or $10 pesos, for very low prices so people can afford them.” She also explained that they are very careful in the distribution of the donations they receive: “It is very tricky to go out on the street and make donations; it is something that must be done very responsibly and carefully. As an example: we also make donations in jails and we bring 4,000 pants, because there are 2,000 inmates and we cannot give to some and not to others because we would be creating a problem,” she explained.
The Coordinator for the Bread and Blanket Shelter also stated, “We are very grateful with Sunset World hotels for making this donation. We are always changing sheets and mattresses due to the needs of the home. What is most important is for donations to reach the people. Iris made us the offer, it all came about very nicely, without any pressure,” and she urged hotels to join the efforts of social organizations not only by making donations but also by visiting their facilities.
