Supporting The St. Lucian Community
At The Landings Resort and Spa, we are proud to support our community through Pack for a Purpose.
We actively support one of St Lucia's community involvement projects called "Pack for a Purpose" by donating supplies to the "Grow Well" volunteer based charity. "Grow Well" was established 15 years ago by The Rotary Club of Gros Islet in the Town of Gros Islet. Its mission is to provide support, education and a base for activity for young people in the area from disadvantaged backgrounds. Guests visiting St Lucia and staying at The Landings are invited to support this initiative. All that's needed is to leave some space in your suitcase to carry a few items for the charity to use. Just think, you will automatically make room for your St Lucia souvenirs on your return journey.
Here are a few suggestions from the "Pack for a Purpose" guidelines provided by Grow Well:
Small gifts and tokens for prizes for competitions (key rings, small diaries, costume jewellery sets, small make-up sets, black hair bows, other similar trinkets).
Stationery, pencils, pens, pencil cases, erasers, crayons, markers, books, stickers, puzzle books, trivia books, story books, kids movie DVD’s, other age appropriate developmental activities (ages 5 – 16 yrs).
The Landings is located on the beach that is part of Gros Islet and within six-minute drive of the Grow Well charity. The Landings will make the necessary arrangements to have your donated items delivered to Grow Well. All you have to do is drop them off at the front desk of the resort whenever it's convenient. We can make arrangements to take the guests over to the center if they would like to deliver their items in person.
