2020 San Felipe Baja 500 Food Drive
September 11th – 27th

Attention RACERS and RACE FANS!

Update 10-6-20, donations are still needed and being accepted. Contact info is below.

We can’t wait to see you all for the upcoming BAJA 500 in a couple of weeks!

While your making your plans to come to San Felipe to participate and enjoy the race, we are asking for your help.

Due to the Pandemic, some of the local people in our little town are really struggling! Fishing has been limited, bars and restaurants are just now opening, races have been cancelled. All this has really caused so many people to be unable to work and feed their families.

As guest residents in the community, we have been having donations and food drives to help the needy. We’ve helped with medical supplies, electricity bills, food and medication.

While things are getting back to “normal”, there is still a great need.

We have organized the BAJA 500 FOOD DRIVE! September 11th-27th
We will have a school bus in front of the NEW San Felipe Brewery location (across from El Dorado Ranch Arco/OXXO). Donations can be dropped off from 12-7.
Let’s all work together to fill up the bus with food for the community!

Canned and dried food and non-perishables…rice, beans, hominy, canned fruit and vegetables, tuna, oil, flour, sugar, pasta, etc.
Personal hygiene and cleaning products are needed too. Soap, shampoo, deodorant, toilet paper, dish and laundry soap, bleach, etc.

Several local grocery stores are open (Gonzalez, La Vaquita) as well as Calimax if you would like to do the shopping once you’re here.

If you would rather make a financial donation, we will make sure every dime goes towards electricity bills or additional food and supplies.

Any donation, large or small, will help.
Everything donated will stay right here in our community.

The locals in our community are very proud, this has been a very difficult time. Together we can make a difference, together we can all get through this!
Thank you so very much!

Now….let’s go racing!!!

In addition to food items and Paper supplies I also have 650kg's of Malted barley and some hop's for the San Felipe Brewery, Wondering if anyone has room in their truck to make the delivery.

That place has great beer! I hope someone can offer assistance. Good beer needs good ingredients!

Down here now. Have 5 bags of kids clothes that need families. The good news is we drove around the crappy part of town and there was no obvious poverty stricken people to give them to. 20-30 years ago we would just stop amongst the pallet hovels and pass out everything in 5 min. Still not great but a great improvement.
any direction on a good drop place for these items ?
