Hi! I’m Alexa and I’m a part of the Beaches Teen Advisory Panel. Just recently we as a panel all got to Pack for a Purpose and head to Turks and Caicos.
My sister and I each packed a backpack full of school goods and brought it to the Beaches Resort we were staying at. My mom and I went shopping before we headed to Turks and Caicos and picked up all different types of pencils, notebooks, erasers and all the necessities you need to learn. We brought everything over to the resort and from there it went to a local school that had students that couldn’t get their own supplies simply because it wasn’t in their budgets, some things are just more important such as food and housing, so it felt really good to know that I helped a few kids to achieve the learning and the supplies they needed.
