Thursday, September 2, 2021 N/Warren Town and County News Page Three Norwalk Citizens Continue Mexico Project This July, a group of Norwalk high school students and adults traveled to Tijuana, Mexico for a week- long mission trip to build houses for families in need. They worked With a group called Mexico Caravan Ministries. The 12’X12’ structures they built are small and simple compared to our standard, but the people of Tijuana call them home and are very thankful. One of the main ways funds are raised for these homes are through the generous donations of Norwalk residents through donating cans & bottles. Thank you Norwalk, for joining in this life-changing endeavor! Fellowship Community Church built one of these homes in the church’s parking lot several years ago to show what one of these houses actually looks like. The “house” now serves as a drop-off location for the recycling of cans/bottles. All you need to do is put your cans/bottles in a bag and put them through the drop off Window in the house. All the money received will go towards the building supplies needed for building additional houses in Tijuana when a group returns annually to Mexico each July. The cost for construction material for each structure is $800+. The team has been building homes in Mexico for the past 11 years (not in 2020), and have built on average 12- 18 homes per year! It is hoped that the money to build these homes will continue to be raised through the generous donations of Norwalk residents and anyone interested in donating towards blessing families in Mexico with new homes.
