Sol St. Maarten Donates School Supplies

Player Development is an organisation in St. Maarten that works with at-risk youth, under the guardianship of Coach Tom Burnett. After the passing of Hurricane Irma, the Centre which houses this organization was destroyed.  Each month, members of The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle volunteer at Player Development, helping out with homework, reading, maths and sports.
When the members of the Mid Isle Rotary Club learned of Player Development’s misfortune, they felt compelled to help in any way possible. They were informed that the group needed reading books, as well as backpacks with school supplies. Mid Isle was able to source the books, and then reached out to Mr. David Antrobus of Sol St. Maarten to assist with the backpacks and school supplies. Together, they were able to provide the members of Player Development with desperately needed school supplies.
