She is a fellow Soufrierian living in Maryland, USA. She came from humble beginnings and wanted to give back to her Community. She began a drive where persons donated school supplies.
This sparked the interest of other fellow Soufrierians like, Shantal Didier-Holder from Canada, Tansy Alexander from Miami, Elmona James from New York and Gianne Beaubrun-Edward from St. John.
She then contacted Melvina Charles of Soufriere who assisted her together with Myola Nicholas and Jan Lamontagne in the distribution of the packages to the kids.
This venture was indeed an emotional and memorial one, especially the joy on the faces of the kids and parents.
Initially it was supposed to be a one time affair but because of the need out there to help these kids and many more, all those persons involved have pledged to make it an annual event.
