2015 Holiday Food Drive

2015 Holiday Food Drive

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.

About El Shaddai Restoration Home for Children
Located in Gasparillo, the Home has been in existence for the past 20 years. At present there are twenty residents with ages ranging from 7-23. Of that number, fourteen are under the age of 18.

About Trinidad and Tobago Hope Centre
In existence for over 15 years, the mission of the Hope Centre is to cater to the poor and needy, including drug abusers, battered women, and homeless individuals. The goal is to improve their quality of life through developing the total person; spirit, mind and body and providing support that will make a significant difference in their lives. Their vision is to offer their “guests,” shelter, food, healthcare, recreation, education, training, employment, and restoration, making each and every one marketable to face the world again and be productive contributors to the society at large.

Sorry guys. I was a bit busy as I am currently completing a CISCO Networking course and had a lot of work to hand-in before Christmas.

Lost track of the cut off date. I just sent a $100US donation to the account so I hope it is not too late otherwise please keep the money to use towards next year's Holiday Fooday Drive.

Big up to SW.net for their annual efforts to help our T&T Children in need.

Season's Greetiongs to all!   :beermug:
