Ki­wa­nis Keeps Giv­ing

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Ki­wa­nis Club of Cas­tries on Wed­nes­day March 3 com­pleted its dis­tri­bu­tion of ham­pers which the club com­menced mid-Jan­uary 2016.

Ev­ery year dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son the club em­barks on its an­nual Ham­per Pro­ject which pro­vides non-per­ish­able food and other house­hold sup­plies to sev­eral homes for the el­derly and to in­di­vid­ual fam­i­lies through­out the is­land.

Mem­bers assem­ble daily for a con­tin­u­ous two week pe­riod out­side the Gable­woods Branch of Su­per J Su­per­mar­ket and so­licit shop­pers to do­nate non-per­ish­able food items to the club. Th­ese items are then care­fully sorted out by club mem­bers over sev­eral evenings into var­i­ous sized ham­pers for dis­tri­bu­tion.

This year sev­eral homes for the el­derly, namely The Mar­ian, St. Lucy, Ade­laide/Frances and Cor­ner­stone Homes, to­gether with the Faustin Or­phan­age Chil­dren’s Home in Soufriere and the Holy Fam­ily Chil­dren’s Home in Ciceron, Cas­tries, were re­cip­i­ents of large ham­pers. In ad­di­tion, over 30 fam­i­lies through­out the is­land were ben­e­fi­cia­ries of smaller in­di­vid­ual ham­pers.

The Ki­wa­nis Club of Cas­tries would like to sin­cerely thank all the shop­pers at the Gable­woods Branch of Su­per J Su­per­mar­ket for their kind gen­eros­ity which made the pro­ject pos­si­ble and also the Man­age­ment of Su­perJ for their kind co­op­er­a­tion.

Ki­wa­nis Pres­i­dent Louise Vite (R) re­ceives a hand­shake of ap­pre­ci­a­tion from An­gel­ica Bis­cette of the Holy Fam­ily Chil­dren’s Home in Ciceron
