Baskets for fire victims



PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — Due to the generosity of Mid Isle Rotarians, we were able to shop and fill baskets with everyday necessities and some hurricane supplies for the recent fire victims.

In one case four homes were lost to fire, while a neighbor lost her livelihood due to her taxi being burnt out. In another case, a young mother was able to get the necessary repairs done to her home. President of the Rotary Club of St. Maarten John Caputo accompanied us and introduced us to the fire victims.

The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle meets Tuesdays at 7:00pm at Mary’s Boone in Simpson Bay. For more information contact or visit our Facebook page Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle.
