BodyHoliday Cares and The Knapsack Project (TKP) teamed up recently to distribute school bags to some twenty-two (22) students at the Grande Riviere Primary, all donated by BodyHoliday guests.
This was part of an annual community-based undertaking aimed at providing knapsacks with school supplies to under-served children in Saint Lucia. The first of several for this year, more schools will be recipients in the coming weeks.
For several years now, BodyHoliday and its sister resort, Rendezvous, have been supporting TKP’s efforts by promoting this initiative via their website, and by assisting with logistics and transportation on island.
Interested persons are invited to provide a new or gently used backpack with school supplies and bring along with them on their upcoming visit to the resort. The supplies include recurrent items such as exercise books, pencils, pencil sharpeners, pencil cases, pens, rulers, crayons, and erasers.
The St. Lucia Knapsack Project operates out of Toronto, Canada and depends on the support of others like BodyHoliday and Rendezvous to reach their goals.
