Letter From The President.      

We need your hands so we can continue helping.”  So reads the motto on the Cruz Roja Mexicana 2018 Colecta announcement.  As President of Cruz Roja Primo Tapia, I take these words to heart.

I am honored to be a part of an organization whose members put their hands to work every day to further the mission of Cruz Roja.  I am grateful for all our incredible volunteers, as well as for those early volunteers and original board members who dedicated their time and energy to get us to where we are today, some two plus years since the founding of Cruz Roja Primo Tapia.

During these founding years, Cruz Roja Primo Tapia has contributed more than $120,000 (USD) to Cruz Roja Mexicana.  This money keeps the ambulances rolling in our area.  We have added new people to the list of members of Cruz Roja.  Today, our membership list includes over 700 individuals who have all contributed to the mission of Cruz Roja.

We need your help to add even more members to our list.  I have a goal of adding 700 more names in these next two years.  Will you help us do that?  Just tell your friends and family who live in Baja (from Popotla to the North and Baja Mar to the South) either part-time or full time to join Cruz Roja Primo Tapia.  It is not only a good cause, but the life you save may be your own. 

Since you are reading this letter on our new website, we are seeing another goal come to fruition - this website.  We have a vision of reaching out to as many people as possible so that the services of Cruz Roja Primo Tapia can reach even more people.

Which brings me to another long-term goal.  As you can read in the history of Cruz Roja Primo Tapia, a significant impetus for the creation of this Primo Tapia chapter was the closing of the clinic in Primo Tapia due to Cruz Roja Mexicana’s lack of funds.  We believe our community of the greater Primo Tapia area needs that clinic.  We need your help to raise enough funds to open its doors once again.  This requires much more money than we are currently raising.  But, with 700 new members and more helping hands, I have no doubt about what we can accomplish together.

I am just now beginning my two-year term as President of Cruz Roja Primo Tapia and I am looking forward to working with all of you to further the mission of Cruz Roja Mexicana.  Please do not hesitate to contact me or the board via the contact form on this website if you have suggestions, comments, etc.  Thank you.  Along with your hands, we need your heart and spirit to keep our dreams alive.
