Women on Wednesdays Aid Local Charities

Women on Wednesdays (WOW) is a social organization comprised of 60+ local foreigners that live year-round in Puerto Vallarta and the Nuevo Vallarta/Bucerias area. They started getting together twice a month, primarily to help ladies with or without partners connect with local goods and services, from doctors and mechanics to home repair practitioners and in-home care support services.

Not content with the social aspect of their organization, WOW has also begun raising funds or donating time to local charities. Some of the members have gotten involved with the Hospiten Hospital in Marina Vallarta volunteer program, pushing a book cart filled with books for all ages and in three different languages, making books available for patients. They are presently looking to start similar volunteer programs in other area hospitals.
