Help bring a smile to a child and family's face! If you live on the island or are coming down to visit before January 1st, please consider making a donation to the Three King's Day project.
Started several years ago by long time resident Susan Bonnett, who passed away earlier this year, the volunteers for the Three Kings project join together to distribute toys, food packages, toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss to those who might otherwise go without.
The volunteers do their best to provide something for everyone: babies, toddlers, school age children, even moms and dads; and they can use your help.
Here are some ideas for donations, but please don't be limited by this list. Let your imagination and creativity run wild
