Two containers have been filled already, thanks to our generous and caring community here in Bermuda. A donor has made a third container available to us, so we are once again preparing to receive donations in BOXES LABELLED WITH NAME OF DONOR AND CONTENTS. We must be mindful of being safe during these covid times, so will not be publishing the container location. We will notify all those who contact us by email to email@example.com of a day/time to drop off items in labelled boxes. The container needs to be delivered to the location for receiving donations.
Volunteers are needed next week Sept 27-Oct 2 (and possibly this weekend) between 11 am and 6:30 pm to assist with receiving the boxes and putting them into the container. If you are able to help for an hour or two within that time frame during the weekend or on weekdays , please contact Linda Rego by text or call 536-3613. Linda will create a roster and it is only then that we will contact donors of boxed items with dropoff day/times. We will need to load some bulkier equipment and palattes first, so please do not try to pop by with any boxes until you are asked to do so. We really appreciate everyone keeping this process and everyone involved safe. What you can do now is start filling your boxes! Thank you so much!
COST OF SENDING THREE CONTAINERS will be between $20,000 and $30,000. Monetary donations towards this cost invited and greatly appreciated.
