PHILIPSBURG:— On February 6, 2017, to kick off Catholic Schools week under the theme: We are called to share with others, the Interact Club of St. Dominic High School welcomed Les Fruits de Mer President Ms. Jenn Yerkes and representatives from the Sister Basilia Center during the school’s weekly assembly.
The Interact Club presented Sister Basilia Center with a donation of NAF. 1800. As well as, sponsoring NAF 198 to Les Fruits de Mer in order to become Friends of the Museum. Les Fruits de Mer curates Amuseum Naturalis our island’s only natural history museum that strives to educate visitors and citizens about St. Maarten’s unique natural history. The Sister Basilia Center works with intellectually challenged clients.
These donations were made possible through Interact’s annual “Gift Wrapping for a Cause” project. During the Christmas Holidays, the members wrap gifts and the collected donations are given to charitable causes on St. Maarten.
The entire Interact would like to thank everyone who contributed to this project. Our biggest supporters every Christmas season are Klass Electronics and Super Plaza who offer space on their premises to wrap gifts. Without their continued support, our project would not have been a success. The Interact Club would also like to thank everyone who came out and helped with the gift wrapping service, and we would also like to say a big thank you to our School Manager Ms. Gianne de Weever, our mentors Ms. Patrice Davis and Ms. Jennifer Halley, and everyone else who made this project possible.
We would also like to wish both Les Fruits de Mer and Sister Basilia Center all the best for their future endeavors.
“Giving back is not just about making a donation; it is about making a difference.” A beautiful quote by Kathy Calvin, perfectly describes the enlightening feeling we had after making the donations.
