As part of the ongoing fundraiser by the Mija, Yes You Can organization, members announced Wednesday that they had received a cash donation from the WellMed Charitable Foundation.
Officials shared that WellMed Charitable Foundation’s $1,000 donation will go to purchasing materials for senior citizen care packages as part of the ‘Mas Amor, Por Favor’ project.
“The project aims to bring some Valentine’s Day love and warmth to the residents of SunRidge at Cielo Vista,” Mija officials shared via a news release. “Abrazos” packages will be delivered to this local assisted-living facility comprised of some tokens of the Mijas’ love.”
The care packages will include:
· An official “Mas Amor Por Favor” shirt
· A warm blanket

In addition to the cash donation, WellMed is also donating 75 pairs of cozy socks to the Abrazos packages.
Interested organizations and individuals can still donate to help the Mijas hit their goal for the Abrazos packages. Donations can be made via the Mija, Yes You Can donation site and type “Mija2 Mas Amor Por Favor” as the reason for donating in the comment section.
