Principal Kay of SPRCS receives computers from Lions members

Last Thursday, the San Pedro Lions Club played Santa Claus as they handed out a hefty amount of equipment and furniture to schools of the island. The large amount of goods - two full containers, came from "Food for the Poor, Inc." in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The donation was an effort from friends in the states who had heard about the devastation Hurricane Keith caused to the island and decided to help "La Isla Bonita."  Although it took some time for the containers to arrive in San Pedro, the goods were welcomed and certainly appreciated by the Lions Club and the schools.

    The schools were each given a list of the containers' items and returned a "wish list" before the distribution on Thursday. Principals, teachers and students of the various schools departed with truck-loads of machinery and furniture that will be put to good use. Included were computers, printers, computer software and manuals, student's desks and chairs, teacher's desks, storage cabinets, miscellaneous office equipment, chalkboards and  more.

    Lion President Flora Ancona would like to take this opportunity to make special mention of Caribbean Depot Freight Services for their assistance and generosity in transporting the containers. She would also like to thank Lion members and volunteers who helped unload and distribute the goods.

    On behalf of the students, schools, the San Pedro Lions Club and the entire community, we extend a heartfelt thank you to Food for the Poor, Inc. for providing these wonderful gifts that will benefit the children of San Pedro.
