PHILIPSBURG — Rotary Clubs in St. Maarten/St. Martin, the US Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda received an offer of early childhood education and development supplies from Do Good International – Crayons Count based in the USA.

  These items were donated to the islands, which were affected by hurricanes recently.

  Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunset selected Children’s World and Ebenezer Learning Center to receive the donated supplies on Wednesday last week and After School Activities ASA)/No Kidding with Our Kids Foundation on Thursday, October 25.

  The supplies included balls, blocks, books, crayons, glue sticks, manipulatives, musical instruments, paint, paintbrushes, construction paper, play dough, puppets, puzzles, scissors and skipping ropes.

  Crayons Count provides recommended learning tools for the early childhood age group, which is up to age 8. It also may have an opportunity to provide age-appropriate books with themes of resilience, environment, etc., for children ages 10-14.

  Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunset thanked Deika Morrison and her team at Do Good International – Crayons Count for their contribution, and Assistant District Governor Marcellia Henry for spearheading this initiative between the five Rotary Clubs on the island.
