Normally our annual holiday food drive is directed at one beneficiary. However, this year we extended ourselves to serve two institutions, the El Shaddai Restoration Home for Children and the Trinidad and Tobago Hope Centre.

About El Shaddai Restoration Home for Children

Located in Gasparillo, the Home has been in existence for the past 20 years. At present there are twenty residents with ages ranging from 7-23. Of that number, fourteen are under the age of 18.

About Trinidad and Tobago Hope Centre
In existence for over 15 years, the mission of the Hope Centre is to cater to the poor and needy, including drug abusers, battered women, and homeless individuals. The goal is to improve their quality of life through developing the total person; spirit, mind and body and providing support that will make a significant difference in their lives. Their vision is to offer their “guests,” shelter, food, healthcare, recreation, education, training, employment, and restoration, making each and every one marketable to face the world again and be productive contributors to the society at large.

Through your generous donations and financial contributions, we were able to alleviate some of the needs of the organizations over the holiday period. Following is a detailed list of what was given:
