every year my SIL organizes flee market around xmas time. the money from selling the items is then spent on purchasing food to make packages distributed in puerto plata area: rice, beans, sugar, oats, pasta, salami, sardine cans and some other stuff.

we are looking for donations: used clothing, shoes and household items, from curtains to spoons. anything that you do not use anymore and looking to get rid of: toys, pots, plates, plastic jewelry and so on.

you can also contribute by visiting the fee market or spreading the word about it. as we get closer to xmas time i will post more details regarding when and where.

i take regular trips to santiago and sosua so a pick up of donations can be arranged. if anyone is interested in making donations they can PM me.

please see a thread from 2015 about the same event where you can see how we handled the things before:
