WHAT YOUR BLANKET PROVIDES
Each blanket purchased provides a family with a Christmas dinner. The dinners were designed to be packaged in a way that families could easily pick it up at the local church and take it back home to enjoy as a family on Christmas Eve. The meal includes a rotisserie chicken, 2 pounds of soup, 2 pounds of salad, a 2 liter soda, 4 dinner rolls, and papergoods (Utensils, plates, napkins). All is packed inside a reusable container with a sticker that, when translated says, "Jesus goes with me".
WHO RECEIVES THE MEALS
Families living in poverty in Cancun, Mexico. Most live in homes that don't have electricity or access to water making it hard for them to have a hot, homemade meal. Christmas is usually spent like any other day.
HOW THE DINNERS ARE DELIVERED
Pastor Arturo arranges the deliveries months before with a local church located in the selected towns. In 2016, 10 towns received meals. Each church receives 100 tickets to distribute to the community. It's not required that the families attend the church. On Christmas Eve each container is packed with food by volunteers from the church and loaded onto the trucks. The trucks then make their way to feed the awaiting families.
