The Morgan Jayne Project has had an exciting winter with a string of successes.
Recently, its campaign to fill the Christmas wish list was met head on by residents who polished off the list. They were able to send nearly two and a half tons of packages to the make a brighter Christmas and a brighter future for some of the poorest of the poor in the western hemisphere.
The gifts have arrived on the island in time for its annual Christmas party.
While it was a monumental task, the support for the project and its main focus of supplying infant formula to help stop the transmission of HIV and aids from mother to child is also strong.
In October volunteers spearheaded a grass roots campaign to make sure no penny was lonely. It caught fire and there were donation boxes at businesses all over the valley collecting loose change. In all, the campaign raised $540.
Last weekend a brave contingent of volunteers had the opportunity to host a barbecue and collect the proceeds. The event raised $175, despite temperatures dropping to -22 degrees Celsius.
