I knew the twin island nation of Antigua and Barbuda were hit hard by Hurricanes Irma and Maria and I wanted to do something to help. After doing some research I found Pack for a Purpose. I chose this organization because they provided me with a list of exactly what was needed and I felt confident that the supplies I was donating would get to the people who needed them. When I dropped off my suitcase at the designated location I was greeted with the warmest of welcomes.
In fact they couldn’t seem to thank me enough. It was such a gratifying experience. I was amazed at how such a small act of kindness could be so appreciated. My family and I often vacation over the holidays and we have decided to make packing for a purpose and our annual tradition. If you are reading this I encourage you to join us. You and the people you are assisting will be very glad you did!
