ZIZ News…Dec 24, 2012 — The executive committee and supporters of the St. Kitts-Nevis Association of Houston (SKNAH) carried on the tradition of making annual donations to organizations in the Federation. This year, our “Pack de Barrel” campaign was focused on collecting items for the residents of the Flamboyant Nursing Home in Nevis, The St. Kitts Nevis Association of People with disabilities, and to the Edgar T. Morris Primary School in Tabernacle.
There was a strong showing of support by members and supporters of SKNAH who generously donated items which filled 3 barrels. Three (3) wheelchairs were also donated. Following the collection drive, a “pack de barrel” party was held at the shipping facility in Houston, Texas where the barrels were packed and shipped.
A formal presentation of the donated items will be made to the residents at the Flamboyant Nursing Home, Alexandra Hospital – Government Road, Nevis at 11:00 am on Thursday, December 27, 2012.
