donating kids clothing & schools items

whenever we travel we bring clothing & school supplies to needy areas. I know the poverty level is around 30% for USVI but can't find organizations or needy schools...any ideas?

Thank you. The Nana-Baby Children's Home is a wonderful organization which always most graciously welcomes clothing and supplies to benefit the children in its care. You can call them at 340-775-0044.

Hi, thank you. I assume from your e-address that this is on St. Thomas, which is where we will be staying. Do you know if they have a website & list a wish list? or ages of children? I will google but if you have any other info I'd appreciate it.

No they don't have a website. You should just call them directly. They house children of all ages from newborns through teenagers. Many of their children come to them through the court and social service systems - addicted parents, felons, etc. where there is no family to care for them. They're located in the Anna's Retreat area of St Thomas which is in the area close to the Tutu Park Mall on Rte 38.

Some organization posts wish lists during Christmas season. They usually have a tree at Tutu Park Mall with the lists.

It would be great if donorchoose.org serviced the VI, because VI educators would gain another donation source. Maybe you can make that happen?!

Unfortunately we won't be there until late january so won't see the tree. I'm sure there are many pre-schools & elementary schools who can use the items...It seems like only the big organizations who already receive lots of money & stuff know enough to post a list linked to the travel sights. I'm not familiar with the site you mentioned. I'll keep checking and accumulating possibilities. Let me know if you come up with anything. and thanks for posting.
