Here at Hamanasi we have strong links to our community of Hopkins and have a strong belief that as part of the community we must do everything we can to support and help Hopkins to grow and develop. One of our favorite relationships is with the schools, not only in Hopkins, but also in the surrounding areas of Silk Grass, Sittee River and Maya Centre. Many guests bring down small packages of school supplies such as pens, pencils, crayons, art supplies, writing books and backpacks. Once we have a collection of supplies the Hamanasi Green Team puts together enough packages for each one of the children and then they get delivered to the schools and the children.
Last week the Hamanasi Green Team took 38 school supplies packages to the Holy Family Pre-school and handed them out to the boys and girls at their Christmas party. The packages were filled with crayons, stickers, posters of colours and numbers, construction paper and some Christmas toys. It was great to help the children with items that they can use both in school and at home to learn as they have just a few more months before starting in the main school.
We would like to send a big Thank You to everyone who brought something on their trip to donate to the schools, no matter what the amount it is always appreciated.
If you would like to donate any supplies to the schools around Hamanasi or to the Hopkins Belize Humane Society (HBHS) you can find all of the supplies that are most appreciated on the Pack for a Purpose website.
