We know that many of you love Cabo and want to give back to this wonderful community. But, it’s difficult knowing which charities are legitimate, especially in a foreign country. While there are many wonderful and worthwhile groups, here are four that we at Cabo Realty Pros support whole-heartedly. We know that these groups can be trusted to use your donation for the intended purpose. Consider a gift, even a small one, to one or more of these excellent causes.
FEEDING LOS CABOS KIDS
Prior to Hurricane Odile this church-based charity fed over 10,000 children from 11 kitchens scattered throughout the poorest areas of Los Cabos. Immediately after the storm they began distributing food and clothing to families who lost everything. The need still exists, and they need funding to re-build the 8 ruined kitchens so that they can provide hot meals and not just a sandwich and an apple. Just one dollar feeds a hungry kid for a day. You can safely donate at www.cabochurch.org, and be sure to designate your gift for Feeding Los Cabos Kids.
LOS CABOS HUMANE SOCIETY.
Immediately after the storm volunteers were out in the community helping injured animals, distributing food and trying to help families keep their best friends. At the shelter the cat housing was destroyed. In spite of that they continue their free spay/neuter program that in 2014 resulted in 3,563 operations. They hope to exceed that number this year.

BOMBEROS (CABO SAN LUCAS FIREFIGHTERS)
As is the case with the other causes on this page, the brave firefighters receive no government funding. In addition to putting out fires they provide search and rescue, ambulance, water rescue and have an active youth program. They also provide a designated driver program which is much more affordable than a taxi. Call Cesar at 044-624-125-7073 to arrange your safe ride home.
CASA HOGAR ORPHANAGE
Casa Hogar, with a capacity for 60 boys, is a comfortable, safe and happy boy’s home set in a camp like environment providing physical and emotional care. In addition to caring for the boys we prepare them for adoption and to be reunited with their families. Boys (young men) still with Casa Hogar after completing high school are provided with future options of advanced education, employment, military choices or housing when leaving Casa Hogar. Plans are in development to construct a girl’s facility on recently acquired adjacent land to extend the existing passion and quality of care to needy girls, including several sisters of Casa Hogar boys.
