Cruz Roja Seeking Fun-Loving Volunteers

� by Sandy Timmons

The volunteer Airport Group of Cruz Roja is seeking some fun-loving volunteers to spend three hours once a week at the Cozumel Airport asking for donations for the 2015 Cruz Roja fundraising goal – finishing and furnishing a Diabetes Medical Center.  The structure is under construction on the Cruz Roja Clinic property on Ave. 65 and the specialized equipment to treat diabetes patients to help prevent gangrene and amputations has already been donated. Cozumel has over 3,000 diabetes patients who desperately need this service.

By joining The Airport Group, you may choose which day of the week you would be willing to volunteer three hours in the airport’s departure lounge.  Because a special permit is required to allow you to be in the departure lounge, we would ask that you be willing to volunteer a minimum of six weeks but preferably 10 weeks.  We will assist you in obtaining the permit, of course. That usually takes a week or so before you can start.

Kindly contact Sandy immediately if you would like to volunteer as we will set up a group session to obtain the permits hopefully by the middle of January.  However, if you would be arriving later in CZM for the winter and would like to volunteer for February and March, that would also be very much appreciated.  Just let us know when you will be arriving.

An ex-Connecticut Yankee who has called Cozumel home for over 18 years, Laura ran away to the Caribbean years ago, bumped around the islands teaching SCUBA diving, lost some time in Jamaica, and finally stopped in Cozumel for a 2 week vacation that hasn’t ended yet. With a degree in Journalism from a fancy private college she convinced her parents to pay for, Laura writes, edits, and creates the weeklyCozumel 4 You news,social media, and promotional articles about the island, as well as moderates the Cozumel 4 You Facebook group, which currently has over 25,000 members. Her long suffering husband, Fabian, has long since resigned himself to having zero private life, as he’s been involved in her various schemes and plots since his arrival. Proud parents to a variety of rescue dogs and cats, Laura continues to be the bane of her traditional Mexican mother-in-law’s existence, as she muses her way through life in the Mexican Caribbean.
