IWC DISTRIBUTES FOOD HAMPERS TO 216 FAMILIES IN ANTIGUA & BARBUDA
Thursday 16th December 2010



Christmas cheer was spread to 216 needy residents and families on 16 December when the International Women’s Club delivered their annual Christmas hampers. The number of hampers was increased this year due to the largesse of the Mill Reef Club Fund, which gave over and above their normal donation in recognition of the tough economic situations many people in Antigua are facing.

More than 30 volunteers gathered at Hero House early Thursday morning to stuff bags with groceries secured by hamper organizer Louise Knapman. Among the items in the two large grocery bags for each household were basics such as rice, flour, sugar, corn meal and oatmeal, along with tinned meats, crackers, tinned vegetables, cookies, fresh fruit, soap, toilet paper and toothpaste.  Then 20 club members drove the bundles to the local health clinics and picked up nurses who guided them to the appropriate homes to deliver the food.

Funds for the purchase of items contained in the hampers was raised through the IWC’s annual Jumble Sale and other fundraisers as well as through donations from the Mill Reef Fund and SOS.

Women interested in joining the International Women’s Club should contact Louise Knapman at 461-6444, louise@candw.ag
