When you think of Mexico, what typically comes to mind is palm trees, sun, and nice ocean waves. But during the winter months, the cold in San Quintin is very cold! Temperatures can stay between 10-20 degrees during a typical day, but at night it can drop down to 7 degrees, and sometimes even 4 degrees!
Most homes don’t have heat or insulation. Sometimes shelters don’t have a floor and are made of nothing more than plastic, pallets, and cardboard. Families huddle together in the one bed they have, crowding together not only because there’s no space but also because they need each other’s warmth to make it through the night. Wind whips the tarp roof, dirt floors turn to mud as rain enters through the walls. These circumstances are unfathomable – but it’s a reality. This is why a blanket, a warm knit scarf and mittens, or some fleece pajamas become a priceless gift.
Help us provide warmth and comfort to families in San Quintin this winter!
