A big thank you to all our members, guests and staff that supported the Royal Resorts Foundation 2017 Toy Drive for needy children and donated gifts over the Christmas holidays. You helped spread some happiness. With your generosity we were able to host a surprise Dia de Reyes or Kings Day party for children attending the Huellas de Pan community kitchen and from the Region 96 district in Cancun on January 8.
Due to the numbers of children attending the event, the party took place in the local park near the Huellas de Pan community kitchen. Some 278 children from the center and the surrounding neighborhood enjoyed a morning of games, dancing and face painting. They munched on the traditional rosca de reyes cake, drank juice and took turns to hit the piñata.
In Mexico you cannot have a party without a piñata and even the smallest children at the Huellas de Pan event proved to be experts at hitting the papier mâché figures and racing to collect the cascade of candies.
As the party drew to a close, the children lined up to receive their gifts from Royal Resorts volunteers and for one last group photo with a big smile and a gracias to all.
Huellas de Pan A.C. community kitchen is working to eradicate malnutrition in one of the poorest districts of Cancun. It provides children with the well-balanced meals they need for healthy growth and learning skills.
