The Mijas City Council will once again promote the campaign ‘Get wet with solidarity’, with which it is hoped distribute some 6,000 tickets for AquaMijas in exchange of donations of school supplies for the Red Crossas announced on Thursday by the Councilor for Youth, Tamara Vera.
“We resume one of our star activities, ‘Get wet with solidarity’, and we do it again hand in hand with AquaMijas and the Red Cross after two years of pandemic, where we have not been able to do it in solidarityand we return to this format again”, indicated the mayor.
In total, he explained that they will be distributed “among our neighbors and neighbors about 6,000 tickets for the water park in exchange for donations of school supplies such as pens, sheets of paper, markers, highlighters, erasers, pencil sharpenerspencils, scissors or notebooks that will end up in the hands of those families that need it most”.
For this, the mayor has advanced that the distribution of tickets and collection of material “It will be done on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:30 p.m. to 7:50 p.m. only through prior appointment on the municipal website (www.mijas.es) in the ‘Appointment’ section, selecting the Youth department and then the day and time you want to collect the tickets. In this way, we will avoid unnecessary crowds and queues,” he added.
‘Get wet with solidarity’ will take place from May 26 to June 30an initiative with which the participants must choose a specific day from the available dates and tickets will be nominalthis means that the name of the person who is going to use it will be written down and it cannot be transferred to another, so there will be no option to change the date and/or name once the name of the person is written on the ticket. .
“It is true that each entry is individualbut in low season until May 31 and from September 1 one ticket is good for two people”, added María del Mar Asesio, the director of AquaMijas, who underlined that this campaign “is very important because we are not only giving option to the citizens of Mijas to come to the park for freebut with a little effort they help other families in need”.
In this sense, Andrés Echebarría, local management technician of the Mijas Red Cross assembly, has emphasized that all the proceeds will go to the hands of “extremely vulnerable families in our school material campaign that we carry out in the months of August and September. The numbers vary, for example, last year we had a great collaboration with Carrefour and we served more than 100 families, but with this campaign I think we will be able to reach almost twice as many.”
