2011 Holiday Food DriveHow time flies. This is the fifth edition of our annual charity/food drive to help the less fortunate amongst us.

This year we have selected Ferndean Children's Home to be the recipient of our donations. Established in 1991 and based in Point Fortin, Ferndean Children's Home has a maximum capacity of 22 children.

They currently house 14 children ranging from 3-14 years old. Kids are placed there via a court order, but are allowed to maintain contact with their families.

Let's show our Warrior spirit and help to provide these kids with fundamental items which we may take for granted. There is a particular shortage of milk and pampers at the home.

Please get your friends, co-workers and family involved. Thank you for supporting this food drive which will benefit our children. Donation details are outlined below.
