St. Lucy’s Home benefits from Fam­ily Foun­da­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

In keep­ing with the man­date of the or­ga­ni­za­tion to help the less for­tu­nate, mem­bers of the Hy­acinth Fam­ily Foun­da­tion as­sem­bled at the St. Lucy’s Home, Bishop’s Gap, Cas­tries, on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 21st to help al­le­vi­ate the plight of the res­i­dents.

Fam­ily mem­ber, Mrs. Jane Au­gustin, on be­half of the Foun­da­tion, pre­sented the Home with much needed food and sup­plies which in­cluded condi­ments, veg­eta­bles, rice, toi­let pa­per and bath soap. In hand­ing over the items she in­di­cated that the Home had been on the Foun­da­tion’s list of places to visit and that the fam­ily mem­bers wanted to help in any way pos­si­ble.

Re­ceiv­ing the items was a very ap­pre­cia­tive Ad­min­is­tra­tor, Sis­ter There­seta. “This do­na­tion comes at the most op­por­tune time,” said Sis­ter, “as the Home is al­ways strug­gling to meet its needs. God al­ways sends a hand just when we need it most.” She thanked the mem­bers of the Foun­da­tion for the ges­ture, not­ing that the items will go a long way in serv­ing the res­i­dents of the Home, and en­cour­aged the Foun­da­tion to keep them on their list of char­i­ties.

In Fe­bru­ary, the Foun­da­tion also hosted a fund-rais­ing Valen­tine’s Day cake sale. Other ac­tiv­i­ties planned for the com­ing months in­clude serv­ing break­fast ev­ery third Satur­day out­side the Bideau-Bo­li­var Park and the dis­tri­bu­tion of clothes and ham­pers, as well as an or­ga­nized lunch for res­i­dents of Coolie Town.
