Thank you Socorro
Editor:
Many days of the year are consumed with concern of how we can continue to help people who need it most. We often use the bulk of our finances making sure people are cared for, and replenishing these finances can often become a burden. This is why I take great pleasure in living in Socorro, where the community tends to be more willing to help when times are a little stressed.
PSI Safe Harbor has been helping people for over 10 years, and with continued support, will continue to make a difference in the lives of our citizens, and our community.
Most of our donations begin to come in when the weather begins to cool off, and these are greatly appreciated, but we at Puerto Seguro also recognize the danger of extreme hot weather. During these times, donations are at a minimum due to the busy summer lives that we all enjoy.
Fortunately, others also recognize this annual occurrence, and continue to open their hearts to people less fortunate than themselves.
I, on behalf of our Board of Directors and clients, would like to thank the people of Socorro who help us remain fluid throughout the year. The wonderful support we are blessed with from the city of Socorro, and Socorro County is enhanced by organizations, such as the M-Mountain Sam’s, The Eagles Club, Aerojet Corporation, the DAV and the local churches of our community. These organizations, along with private supporters, have been instrumental in strengthening the faith we have in our community, and we consider them all great friends of Puerto Seguro.
We have started a campaign at www.indiegogo.com/project/134309/widget/756859 that informs people of who we are, and what we do, and it also gives them the opportunity to donate through Pay-Pal, as does our web site. Our thanks go out to the Martinelli family, Jim and Rita Goerhing, and Kari Barbeiri for their support on Indiegogo.
Thank you Socorro, for your kind hearts, generosity, and caring attitude. All are welcome to come by and visit us, as we would love to have you as our guests!
