At Now Amber Puerto Vallarta, we are so fortunate to spend our days in a place of incredible beauty, with the best guests in the world! We think it’s only right that we should give back to this place which has given so much to us. Our family of Now Amber employees pride ourselves not only on the outstanding service we provide for our guests, but also everything we do for the local community.
For Three Kings Day, a holiday celebrated in Mexico to mark the culmination of the twelve days of Christmas, Now Amber staff members visited Pasitos de Luz. Pasitos de Luz is a non-profit organization founded by mothers of children with disabilities to care for local children growing up with few resources, offering free rehabilitation services, food, education and childcare. Pasitor de Luz currently cares for 122 children.
In honor of the Christmas season, Now Amber employees and willing guests also visited Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza (RISE) to donate toys. RISE is a non-profit shelter for babies and children under 14 run by local nuns. Many of the children are orphans or were simply abandoned by their families. Everyone was so touched by all the children’s smiles as they each received their gifts—perhaps the only ones they would receive during the Christmas season. We were especially touched to discover one of our very own concierges grew up in RISE.
Our involvement in the community is so great that we received an award from the Desarrollo Integral de la Familia (DIF), a Mexican public institution with a focus on strengthening the welfare of Mexican families. We look forward to continuing to do good and offer our guests the opportunity to give back to the wonderful community surrounding Now Amber Puerto Vallarta!
