November 26, 2010
San Francisco, Nayarit - The always innovative Entreamigos, a non-profit community education center in San Pancho, is due to unveil their latest project in a push towards sustainability - a new Resale Shop set for a grand opening on December 16th, 2010.
Entreamigos is coordinating a clothes and goods drive in Puerto Vallarta to help gather goods to sell in their store. The proceeds from the store will be used to support education for children and families at the beautiful Entreamigos education center in San Pancho.
This Saturday, November 27th, clothes and goods will be collected at the Puerto Vallarta Old Town Farmers Market. Please bring your gently used stuff on Saturday, visit the Entreamigos booth and learn more not only about the new store but about some of the amazing upcoming events, lectures, concerts and activities that Entreamigos is planning for the 2011 season.
Please help us by dropping off your used goods. If you cannot make it to the Farmers' Market on Saturday, please email Nicole at nrswedlow(at)gmail.com to coordinate a pickup.
If you aren’t already familiar with the Entreamigos Community Education Center, it is certainly a destination to visit in the region.
