Kiwanis Barbados South has for years kept their tradition of Independence hampers.
Kiwanis Barbados South has for years kept their projects going, most on an annual basis, this includes the Independence hampers.
This year was no exception as the more than 50 members of the club gathered at the Southern Palms Hotel and in true Kiwanis spirit packed toiletries, canned items and food supplies.
The hampers are a tradition for the club - they are packed and distributed to persons who members identify as in need.
Trevor Manning who heads The Community Services Committee under which the activity falls spoke about the initiative:
“Giving to people in need is such a great feeling, it makes us feel as if we are fulfilling our role in this life. We at this club love nothing more than to give, to help and to do what we can to make people live at ease. The fifty hampers mean a lot, we are still in the fifties and we look forward to packing 60 in the next eight years when the country celebrates its 60th anniversary.”
