Freeport, Bahamas - This past week from June
10 to 14th, over 100 Florida high school students who just recently
graduated came to Freeport to celebrate their graduation; however, they
did more than just celebrate.
Over the course of four days from 10 am-2 pm
each day the students volunteered through the Bahamian nonprofit Lend a
Hand Bahamas who coordinated with the YMCA in Freeport and the Grand
Bahama Children's Home to assist in projects including painting,
cleaning, and debris removal.
The students were brought to The Bahamas
through a travel company called S-Trip! who partnered with Lend a Hand
Bahamas to make these projects a reality.
A bulk of the supplies were
donated by Lesley Davies-Baptista and her company Paint Fair in Freeport
and S-Trip! also graciously contributed towards the effort.
