'Tis the Season……… to care for those who most need your help.
For many of Buenos Vecinos de Boquete’s clients, this is a season of great challenges. Here are some ways you can make life better for them:

  • Become a BVB Coconut Foundation Member by donating $30 a month or with an annual gift of $360. This will help supplement a family’s food needs for a whole year.
  • Make a Christmas or Hanukah donation on behalf of a family member or friend. We will give you or email you a BVB certificate featuring their name that you can present to them this holiday season.

  • Buy one or more of the new BVB/ FPI (Handicap Foundation) bilingual recipe books at $10 each. All profits go to our organizations.

  • Donate personal hygiene products for our clients and drop them off at Mailboxes, Etc. in downtown Boquete.

Read the articles that follow in this newsletter to see more details and, on behalf of all of our clients, Thank You!


Family of the Month

november family

Rainy season in the Boquete area means more indoor activities and pastimes for many of us, but for Orlando and his family, this is a season of even greater hardship. As a farm worker, making a monthly average of $120, rainy season is a time when work is scarce and so are the wages to support a family of eight. Though they pay no rent for their wood and zinc house and have no electricity, they must make enough to feed and clothe everyone. He and Adelina send four of their older children to school and look to a better future for them. Go to our website www.buenosvecinosdeboquete.com to see how you can help Orlando’s and other BVB families.

The Great Stocking Stuffer is Here!

  A Great Stocking Stuffer

Just in time for the holidays, a new cookbook appears! Thirty-seven Panamanian and expat recipes are featured in both Spanish and English and bound in a convenient design that lays flat for easy reading. The cost is $10 each and all proceeds will benefit BVB and FPI. Also available are postage prepaid padded envelopes for mailing to US addresses for $2.75 each. They are available at Tuesday Morning Market, or contact us at buenosvecinosdeboquete@gmail.com


Gifts for the BVB Families


MailBoxes Etc. and Buenos Vecinos de Boquete are sponsoring a Christmas collection of personal hygiene products. The drive will extend from now to December 20th at the MBE location in downtown Boquete. The items will be distributed to the BVB clients with their monthly food deliveries just a few days before Christmas. Please donate bar soap, shampoo, tooth brushes for adults and children, toothpaste and bandaids. Thank you for your generosity!!

A Gift Certificate for Someone You Love



You can present an official Buenos Vecinos certificate to a family member or friend featuring their name and acknowledging that a donation of any amount you select has been made on their behalf to BVB families. We can email you the certificate or print it for you. (If you want to mail it with a BVB/FPI Cook Book, we can help!) Contact us for details at buenosvecinosdeboquete@gmail.com

A Special Thank You!

Our Restaurant Program kick-off at El Viajero was a big success. Thank you to owner, Mattia Bertero, and all the happy diners who enjoyed a free beverage in exchange for their donation of a bag of rice to BVB.
