The PEACE IS Foundation will be hosting their fifth annual Fundraising Breakfast on St. Maarten’s Day, November 11 at Taloulah Mangos, in keeping with their efforts to promote peace amongst the youth in our society.
The proceeds from these annual breakfasts are usually donated to a particular school to assist with their non-violence promotional activities and this year, the recipient of this donation is the Methodist Agogic Center (MAC) School, both campuses.
"We chose the MAC school this year because of a number of reasons," Glenville Blake; President of PEACE IS said. "For one, we have never made a contribution to this school before and they are one of the largest elementary schools on the island so the target group is by far bigger, he explained. "This school has very low violence and while it is good to target other school that has violence, it is also good, it is also good to highlight those keeping the peace."
This year instead of having the breakfast at two locations, PEACE IS will be hosting the St. Maarten Day breakfast at Taloulah Mangos and tickets for this event can be bought at any of the MAC campuses.
"We urge the community, especially parents to support this venture," Blake said. "Buy some tickets, make it a family experience, have breakfast with your kids and bond with them, use the time to sit and talk to them in a nice environment, because peace makers are created at home."
