THE "BLOCK" WHERE ADOPT THE BLOCK BEGAN
COZUMEL, MEXICO (FELIX GONZALEZ NEIGHBORHOOD)
PROJECT: BUILD A FUNCTIONAL STORE AND MEETING SHELTER
The Premier Foundation formed a relationship with the people of the Felix Gonzalez neighborhood during our visit to Cozumel to construct the playground at the Ciudad de Angeles Children’s Home. At the time, it was a “newer” neighborhood, although you would never know by looking at the homes and corner store built from rubble and leftovers. It was here that the vision for Adopt the Block was born. On subsequent visits, the Foundation donated much-needed clothing, shoes and a variety of sports equipment for the children of the neighborhood.
