    Project #1

    Holy Family Hopkins School is located in Hopkins Village and serves 400 children from ages 3 through 12 years old.

    Thanks to the generosity of our guests who “Pack for a Purpose,” we are able to provide any supplies beyond what the school requires to other community projects throughout the year, such as the Kite Festival and Hopkins Day Fair.

    We also collect children’s books that we donate to Miss Bertie’s Hopkins Community Library that is also situated in Hopkins Village.

    Project #2

    The Hopkins Belize Humane Society is an organization committed to the care and welfare of animals and people in Hopkins Village, Belize. Several times a year, free spay/neuter and treatment clinics are coordinated through U.S. and Belize volunteers. All donated supplies benefit the HBHS.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of June 10, 2021
    Note: Location is approximated. If you see a lodging that is misplaced or missing, please contact us .

    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.
