Charity Coalition (CC), the multiservice umbrella organization established in early 2009 with the objective of understanding a variety of individual needs, fundraising and donation tactics of a dozen nonprofits in order to avoid duplication of efforts and over-saturation of events on similar dates, is asking for members of the community to bake up batches of Christmas cookies to be sold to help finance projects for a number of its charities.

The baked goods will be received by CC volunteers between Dec. 11 and Dec. 15, at Montes Pirineos 720B in Colonia Lomas de Chapultepec.

The money raised from the sale of the cookies will go to purchase materials for some of the CC’s charities, which include the American Benevolent Society (ABS), which offers supports to U.S. citizens living in Mexico and others in need; the Asociación Franciscana, which shelters more than 1,800 stray dogs and cats; the Fundación ABC, which assists the needs with medical issues in cooperation with the ABC Medical Center; the Fundación Barra Mexicana, which assists people and institutions with legal guidance; the Fundación Dar y Amar, a residence for adolescent mothers and their children; the Fundación de Cáncer de Mama, (Fucam), a hospital that treats financially strapped patients with breast cancer; the Fundación Domus Alipio, a home for HIV-positive widows and their children; the Fundación Hogar Dulce Hogar home for orphaned and displaced children; the Fundación Mexicana del Riñón, which assists people with kidney failure; the Fundación para la Asistencia Educativa, a preschool and kindergarten for children living in and around the Chimalhuacán garbage dump: and the Casa de la Sal community center for children and adults who are HIV-positive.
