We are proud to support our local school at River Sallee, where 160 enthusiastic and charming children from ages 5 through 16 in our neighborhood are supported by loving and forward-thinking teachers and staff. The Principal, Mrs. Jean James Ross, is always so welcoming to our guests when we drop off donations, and strives to provide strong educational scaffolding for the growth of her charges.
The GSPCA (Grenada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is integral to the survival of thousands of dogs and cats each year on the Island, and is often the only affordable venue for pet care for so many Grenadians.
The GSPCA provides low cost and free spay/neuter clinics, an education program, vaccination clinics, a volunteer vet scheme and community outreach programs for unwanted, abused, neglected or stray animals.
Ocean Spirits is a local non-profit, devoted to education, monitoring and conservation of the marine environment and marine life – primarily Sea Turtles. Located in Grenada and relying solely on volunteers, grants and donations, Ocean Spirits conducts research and supports generation of sustainable, community-based Eco-tourism practices.
Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.
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.
