Hope for the Holidays 2021
The holidays are right around the corner, and Ama is launching its second annual multi-city toy drive to bring hope and joy to both Grand Rapids immigrant families and the many impoverished children in Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico!
Hope for the Holidays 2020 served 56 disadvantaged families in Grand Rapids with food items and gifts and sent over 800 toys to be distributed in Zapopan Jalisco, Mexico.
The need is critical this year, since in July 2021, over 1000 families were displaced in Zapopan after a devastating flood. Since then, Ama has provided over $300,000 in emergency aid and resources to families in need. These are the families we will be focusing on for 2021 efforts in Mexico. It is also our goal to continue serving locally, by providing for 100 Grand Rapids families.
