MICOP is preparing for our annual Fiesta Navideña on Saturday, December 14th at the Boys & Girls Club, 1900 W. 5th St., Oxnard and also on the same day at Rio Real School, 1140 Kenny St., Oxnard. Our Fiesta is a year-end cultural event for the Mixtec community. Santa will be giving out candy canes to the children, we will have lots of different crafts tables, a DJ, and our first ever community-wide Potluck in Oxnard. We have various opportunities for our supporters to help make this a wonderful event! Please read on to see how you can participate.

Toys may be brought directly here (520 West 5th St, #F). If you would like to start a toy drive I am attaching a flyer you can print out with all the information. If you would like us to print flyers or supply cartons for toy drives, please let us know!
