Act & Pack is a grassroots initiative created in Toronto, Canada, by friends, family, and fans of St. Maarten to help in the relief effort. Our focus is on vulnerable populations: youth, expecting mothers and/or single parents, and the elderly, among others.
The Act & Pack team is hosting donation drives, and collecting backpacks containing non-perishable food items and essential personal care items to send to St. Maarten. Join our facebook group.
1. To collect and distribute 100 bags filled with essential items to the district of St. Peters - an underserved community in St. Maarten.
Our GoFundMe Intentions:
We plan to use the money raised through GoFundMe to:
- Cover the cost of shipping items (by cargo ship) to St. Maarten;
- Cover costs for customs, transporting and distributing the backpacks on the ground in St. Maarten;
- Provide a small honourarium to two local community organisers who are providing logistical support, and conducting on-the-ground outreach in St-Maarten to identify vulnerable persons in need of our help.
