The Puerto Vallarta Navy League A.C. recognizes that we are located in the host country of Mexico. In the beginning our priority was the distribution of toys to needy children through our Toys 4 Tots program.
We then saw an additional need for our efforts and developed our ComRel program using the sailors from visiting ships and workers from the NL to refurbish aging buildings such many schools, Medical facilities such as the Santa Barbara Clinic, and the Asilio, an elderly people’s home. Those ships were also bringing medical supplies and other items needed here in Puerto Vallarta.
Two years ago we recognized the need to expand our efforts to include more extensive upgrades and so we established the Community Services group within the NL. Our new Community Services group goes beyond a one day ship visit for painting and minor repairs, which will stay with our Comrel group, to a far wider need for extensive upgrades to much larger facilities such as the rewiring of buildings to more modern standards, installing or repairing of fans, providing ventilation to cooking areas, planting trees and shrubs, repairing or replacing fences & gates, repairing or the installation of masonry construction, painting, roof repairs and many other efforts to improve the welfare of those in need. With the additional help of the American Legion and the governmental agencies of Puerto Vallarta, we are constantly expanding our efforts to make Puerto Vallarta an even better place to live.
We work with the local municipal government, school system and recognized charities to establish priority for the various projects. Our funding is generated through various fund raising efforts throughout the year. Everyone is welcome to join us for a few hours as we help those in need.
