The Moorings has partnered with the Family Support Network (FSN) to aid in their work to eradicate domestic violence in the British Virgin Islands and beyond. FSN aims to “strengthen individuals, couples and families through education that leads to prevention, support to those in crisis, and rehabilitation through counseling and networking, to those who desire change.
By packing any of these needed supplies, and simply dropping them off at The Moorings reception area, you can support a worthwhile organization and continue your vacation with the knowledge that you have helped others in need.
General School Supplies:
Pens, Solar Calculators, Tape, and Texas Instrument Calculator (T1-84)
Connect Four, Puzzles, and Board Games
New Underwear and Children’s Socks
Bars of Soap, Combs, Deodorant, Hair Brushes, Lotion, Multivitamin Tablets (for Children and Adults) Pampers, Sanitary Napkins, Tampons, Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, and Washing Powder
Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
