Rancho Chilamate’s 3rd Annual Christmas Bucket Drive

Each year, our friends, Blue and Jamie, hold a Christmas Bucket Drive to raise money to fill buckets with supplies needed most by the local communities near their ranch in San Juan del Sur.  The cost to purchase is just $25 and provides a family with 5 gallon buckets with household items that the families would buy with what little money they have. This includes items such as:

  • cooking oil
  • salt
  • sugar
  • candles
  • matches
  • toilet paper
  • laundry soap
  • towels
  • blankets
  • cookies
  • spices
  • soup mixes
  • coffee
  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  •  soap
  • sacks for harvesting
  • and last year we had enough donations to add new machetes to the buckets
  • and about 80 new files
  • PLUS they get the bucket with a lid as well… a very useful tool around the house.

For more information or to donate, please visit their website, Rancho Chilamate.  To see previous year bucket drives click here and here.

Let the spirit of giving begin and happy holidays!
