Members of the Rotary Club of St. Maarten and Learning Unlimited and Milton Peters College EarlyAct and InterAct Clubs gathered at Prime Distributers in Cole Bay to make and stuff an upwards of 200 Food Hampers for those in need during the Holiday season. An assembly line of volunteers put flour, rice, cereals, canned vegetables, and many other food items necessary for a great holiday feast together in hampers and staged them for delivery to those in need before the holidays. About 20 Rotarians and another 20 EarlyAct/InterAct members participated in the preparation.
“It was a lot of fun putting together these baskets,” said Club President Danny Ramchandani. “Seeing everyone taking time out of their busy schedules to help make a difference to those who might not be able to fully enjoy a holiday meal is such a great feeling. We had started a campaign earlier in the year of ‘No Child Goes to Bed Hungry Tonight’ and these food baskets fall into this mission.” He continued to say. “On behalf of the Rotary Club of St. Maarten, I would like to wish everyone a joyous and safe holiday season.”
