In numerology, some of the meanings of the number 9 are universal love, service to humanity, philanthropy, and charity. Those meanings perfectly capture the essence of our ninth annual charity/food drive. This year we will strive to collect enough items to distribute to two beneficiaries, the El Shaddai Restoration Home for Children and the Trinidad and Tobago Hope Centre.
Let's show our Warrior spirit and help to provide the underprivileged with fundamental items which will enhance their daily life.
Please get your friends, co-workers and family involved. Thank you all for supporting this food drive. Donation details are outlined below.
