More than 150 people received clothes, food and christmas gifts at SMA’s municipal dump, as part if a citizen’s initiative that started eight years ago.
Joseph Benett and Eli Hans from San Francisco, California, moved to San Miguel ten years ago, and one day, on Christmas Eve, they realized they did not need any presents for themselves, but instead, they decided to buy blankets, pillows and clothes to deliver to the most needy people.
And when Joseph and Eli delivered the items, these homeless people asked them for water.
When they passed by Dolores Hidalgo municipal dump, they thought it would be a good idea to help the garbage collectors they saw there, and so they began to get together with other charitable souls and gather food and clothing for those people in need.
In 2015, they delivered fruits, vegetables, clothes, hygiene products and other items to the people that make their living collecting garbage in these two dumps.
If you want to be part of this initiative, bring your donations to Prolongación Aldama no. 91, you have until Saturday December 24th, at 9:00 am.
In an interview with Atención San Miguel, Joseph Benett made an open invitation to all Expats and Mexican nationals living in San Miguel, to visit the people that live at the municipal dumps (yes, they actually live there); and do something for these unfortunate human beings.
