American Legion Post 14 Supports PV Non-Profits

Dennis A. Rike –
September 11, 2013

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico – Our American Legion Post 14 of Puerto Vallarta has been really busy helping many of our non-profits with weekly projects in various locations around Banderas Bay during these summer months.

One of the main methods Post 14 contributes to the community is through various fundraising efforts. Another way we help is to provide necessary resources and manpower to improve various institutions in the Banderas Bay area.

These institutions include Day Care Centers, Senior Citizens Homes, Schools for the Disabled and Deaf, Public Schools in rural areas and other private institutions needing building maintenance.

The School for the Deaf in San Vicente del Mar, Nayarit, received a lot of needed maintenance on the interior and exterior. The American Legion, through the Jay Sadler Project, paid for everything and the Piratas M.C. (Harley Davidson Riders) assisted the American Legion.

Busca un Amigo (Project Pitillal) is a child care center for rehabilitation of needy children with Cerebral Palsy. This project included repairing the wall.

Go to original on the American Legion website to learn about other American Legion Post 14 projects.
