    Default POP: xmas flee market to gather money for food packages

    my sister in law organizes flee market with purpose of collecting money for making food packages distributed among the poorest during xmas time. the market will take place in puerto plata, in a small park in front of bomberos on the 12th of december.

    she is looking for donation of clothes, shoes and small household items (plates, towels and so on). if you are interested in donating your old clothing for this purpose please send me a PM. i can either pick the items or put you in touch with the organizers.

    alternatively you may want to contribute by visiting the flee market and making a purchase. let others know as well. i still do not know what time the market will start. in previous years all goods were sold fast and money was used to make basic food packages distributed around POP area. if you want more details regarding this, please PM and i will put you in touch with my SIL.

    thanks.

    one of our members has generously agreed to set a donation point in fraggle rock restaurant in sosua. if you have any spare goodies, you can leave them there.
    also, the pulga will take place on the 5th of december now so i will pick up all the items from sosua on the 28-29th of november, so they can get sorted.
    thanks.

    i am grateful for all the donations received so far. if you have any old clothing, shoes and household items please remember that the collection point in sosua is in fraggle rock. grab a cold fria while you're there. this weekend is the last one before the pulga too.
    thanks to all.

    We did a first run to Puerto Plata with the items generously donated by residents in Sosua. Whilst we were away more things were left at Fraggle Rock, subject to dv8 being available, I will do a final delivery on Thursday so you still have a couple of days to sort out those clothes you never wear and items you never use.
