Mexico Service Trip

13528789_10153728875152947_5167919640414579267_nThis is a public service announcement… Err… Just kidding! This is a USANA True Health Foundation announcement. A lot of you asked us at the recent International Convention in Salt Lake City to have more service trips, and so we made it happen! From November 27th to December 3rd, YOU could be in Baja, Mexico, doing hands-on service with the Foundation!

Foundation for His Ministry

Our group will be hosted at the “Foundation for His Ministry” in Baja, Mexico. Baja is located 110 miles south of Ensenada, in the small and rural town of Vicente Guerrero.

The “Foundation for His ministry” is a Christian organization that was founded by Chuck and Charla Pereau in 1967. They currently host 90 children; each of whom has a unique story that led them to the Foundation. In addition to the orphanage and nursery, the Foundation has grown over the years to include a soup kitchen, medical center, disabled children’s learning center, and drug and alcohol rehab center; amongst other social services.

The Pereau’s started the Foundation in order to be able to give a chance to all those they encountered through their service a chance to live up to their full potential.

In your application, please include your name, associate ID, phone number, email address, age and a short description of why you’re interested in participating.

Attendees MUST be current (2016) USANA True Health Foundation donors. That means that you must currently have a cash donation going to the Foundation on your monthly Auto Order.

Minors will not be allowed on this trip.

The total cost of the trip will be 350 USD (excluding transportation to San Diego), and this will cover both room and board for the duration of the trip.

Transportation

  • San Diego is the closest international airport.
  • Plan to be at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina (Address: 333 W Harbor Dr, San Diego, CA 92101) at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday November 27th for pick-up.

      Thanks for inquiring Jerry. You will just need to have a passport and be a monthly donor at any amount.
