Members of Grace Communion International Church donated school supplies to teachers and students of the Coulibistrie Primary School, Colihaut Primary School and Petite Savanne Primary School on October 21 and October 22, 2015.
The donations were made possible through support of the Pine Plain Presbyterian Church in New York, Grace Communion International, Orlando and Grace Communion International Dominica.
Upon hearing how the children of Dominica were affected by Tropical Storm Erika, the pastors of the US based churches immediately mobilized their members and a school supply drive was started. Supplies were shared among a total of 130 children at the various schools.
Principals of the respective schools welcomed this timely initiative.
Pastor of Grace Communion International (Dominica), Mr. Crisford Vidal, said, “ It was a pleasure of very hard work in serving the young children in need after Tropical Storm Erika. We left them very excited and joyful for having been served by people from far and near.”
