We are still collecting bottles for Ginny, the senior lady we support, who survived Hurricane Dorian that devastated the Bahamas in 2019. Your generosity in the past 4 years has been amazing!

From the sale of the cards in the spinner by the door, and donations, we matched dollar for dollar and we’re able to send almost $1,000.00 to the L.I.F.E. (LUCY IRVINE FOUNDATION EUROPE) rescue and rehabilitation centre for abused and abandoned animals in Bulgaria. They receive no funding from the government or any private businesses, strictly surviving on donations from people. We are proud to be able to help them with pet food and any surgical needs.
