The Caribbean Island Associations and MRU present this unique showcase!
Dear Nationals and Friends of Saint Lucia,
Saint Lucia has received a generous donation of two fire trucks from Firefighters Without Borders (FWB), which is a registered charitable organization in Canada, run by volunteers who are dedicated to equipping firefighters around the globe.
The Consulate General of Saint Lucia in Toronto, in collaboration with the Saint Lucian Associations in Canada, is working on making arrangements to have the two fire trucks shipped to Saint Lucia. Firefighters Without Borders has secured sponsorship for the shipping costs of one of the trucks, through the generosity of Metro Logistics Group Project.
We are now tasked with covering shipping costs of CAD$12,000.00, to get the second fire truck to Saint Lucia. We have therefore created a GoFundMe page, to seek assistance in raising funds to meet the associated costs.
Methods of Donation:
1. GoFundMe (link below)
2. Cheques can be made payable to:
The Saint Lucia-Toronto Association
Address: 909-60 Saint Clair Avenue East
Toronto, ON M4T 1N5
We are appealing to anyone who is willing, to make a special effort to support this worthy cause. All donations, big and small, WILL make a difference.
Pledge, donate and circulate to friends and family!
