Operation Grenada Child

Written By: admin - Oct• 18•12

Magical things happen on the island of Grenada. Not the least of which was the Limes After School Program, administered by the Significant Others (SO) Organization of St. George’s University.

As president of the SO Organization, I got to see and be a part of some amazing acts of service. The Limes Program was one of them. Now, living in the United States my fellow and former SO Board Members and I have been searching for a way to fill the void left by the absence of all our volunteering.

So without further adieu, let me introduce Operation Grenada Child. This Christmas we are aiming to give each child in one of Grenada’s crime and drug riddled neighborhoods a shoebox filled with their own Christmas presents.

We have put up a website where you can sign up to fill a box, learn more about the program and meet the kids who we have fallen in love with over the past year. If you have any questions about Operation Grenada Child or the program, please ask away! I am more than happy to talk your ear off about these great kids.

We are especially encouraging you to add little notes or photos or anything that can help these underprivileged children feel love from across the miles. Each child is fighting an uphill climb against poverty and violence in an environment that makes the poorest of Americans seem rich beyond compare. I hope the ability to create a personalized Christmas gift gives our friends and family an opportunity to come to know and love these sweet children the way we have.

Being a part of this project has already filled our home with the Christmas spirit. I hope it can bring a little joy to your home this holiday season as well.
