“We have school supplies, we have clothing, we have shoes, various stuff that we know the kids, the needy kids will be able to utilize.”

“And how will you decide which kids will be receiving these gifts?”

“Okay, what happen last December we had a dinner for needy kids of the community and what happen when we were expose to two hundred and fifty something kids in the community. So and then this past summer we did, we did a summer camp where we did classes with them. We are very familiar with this, with the community; but given the magnitude of what all we have here, we are certain, we will be able to distribute to other areas other than just the immediate area that the lodge is situated like the Vernon Street area.”

 

The handing over took place at the Steadfast Masonic Lodge on Vernon Street and according to its members they plan to make donations every year

    Thanks, once again, for the generosity of Americans. I really appreciate gestures to help our needy children, to give them a chance at a better life that they might not receive any other way.

    I sometimes see negative comments about the States here, but we’re always seeing stories about how the US government and private groups donate to help us, a tiny little nation that is not important to them in a realpolitik sense. They do it just to help us, and don’t ask for anything in return. Imagine what the situation would be if we had Communist China as our “big neighbor” instead of the US!

    So thanks, Americans.
