SIMPSON BAY, Sint Maarten – For Valentine 2018 The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle were able to assist the Community Outreach Mentorship and Empowerment Center (COME) with food items for their soup kitchen with the project ‘Rotary has Heart to Make a Difference’. This project was first and foremost an effort to put food on an empty plate, to fill an empty stomach to bring a ray of hope to the hungry.
Recently Donna Morrison from the COME center reached out to Mid Isle asking for help with items for their soup kitchen. Mid Isle Rotarian Jeff with the help of three of his clients were able to help with the fresh items needed, while on behalf of The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle, President Denise, Secretary Aernout and Foundation Chair David shopped and delivered the non-perishable items needed from the required list.
After the passing of Hurricane Irma, the COME Center embarked on a project to provide breakfast and lunch for persons in the community who were in need of a hot meal on a daily basis. They currently feed 75 persons daily. The COME Center also provides an adult literacy program and computer classes for seniors.
The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle meets Tuesdays’ at 7pm at Pineapple Pete in Simpson Bay. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our face book page Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle.
