With the objective of helping those who have been affected by the current sanitary contingency, the prominent real estate agency Tropicasa Realty decided to do its bit by supporting the Vallarta Food Bank, a community project organized by Francie Nguyen, Jimmy Plouff y Francie Victoria. The purpose of this initiative is to collect food and distribute it to the greatest possible number of families in vulnerable conditions.

To learn more about this food bank, the editorial staff of Vallarta Lifestyles interviewed Wayne Franklin, broker and president of Tropicasa Realty, who kindly share that since mid March, the company’s staff was planning on getting involved in different projects to help the community: “When we heard about this amazing initiative, we decided to talk to the organizers and support with donations and direct service in the facilities of this food bank, to help expand the reach,” he explains.

In addition, Franklin mentioned that this initiative is open to everyone who wants to help and expressed the great satisfaction that comes from participating in these types of efforts.

“We are participating in this effort because we are so grateful to Puerto Vallarta, and because we very much value the community we live in and the people who have become our friends and neighbours. Without a doubt, it is times like this when we are more than proud to live in such a beautiful place with such amazing people.”

Currently, the financial contributions of Tropicasa Realty support more than 250 Vallarta families weekly, for this reason they have decided to continue backing this initiative until the sanitary contingency comes to an end.

The Vallarta Food Bank headquarters are located at 379 Río de la Plata street, López Mateos.

We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue.”
