Following the passing of Tropical Storm Erika, which affected several communities and individuals across Dominica, Save A Lot has partnered with the Dominica Red Cross to provide relief hampers to the people affected of the storm.

Save A Lot response addressed some of the critical needs of the people affected. The aim was to improve the circumstance of everyone in the communities by offering everyday necessities available at an affordable price.

Save A Lot General Manager Mrs. Mathilda Dejean emphasized that Save A Lot is committed to the people of the communities we serve and therefore we are pleased to contribute much-needed items to those in need.

The items offered included sheets sets, bath towels, and other household and grocery items donated to the Dominica Red Cross who will distribute hampers to the affected individuals.

The Director of the Dominica Red Cross Mrs. Pinard Byrne said that it has been nearly seven weeks since the devastating TS Erika struck Dominica but the people who were affected are still in need of assistance. She further commented that the Dominica Red Cross is grateful to Save A Lot for the timely donation of these items, as they will help to complete the relief hampers that are to be distributed.

Save A lot pledged continued support to the Red Cross and gave its commitment to continue to provide much needed assistance to our customers and all Dominicans alike.

    Hmmm. I wonder if the people of Delices and Boetica will see any of those relief items? As Mrs Dejean said, it has been almost seven weeks since Tropical Storm Erika struck and the people of those two communities as still effectively cut off from the rest of the county for the most part. As far as I know it has been a while since they have received any rations.
