Rotarians prepare food hampers for holiday meals

POSTED: 12/2/14 6:53 PM

St. Maarten —More than 200 food hampers have been stuffed by members of the Rotary Club of St. Maarten, Learning Unlimited and  Milton Peters College –EarlyAct and InterAct Clubs—to be delivered to those in need during the Holiday season.  The hampers were stuffed at Prime Distributors in Cole Bay.

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.”
