Pack for a Purpose

You can make a positive impact and make a donation to our local community


We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilograms of space in your suitcase and take supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families. We support local schools and the local medical clinic. Many families are unable to purchase all the supplies needed for their children to attend school, and many of the local schools are under resourced. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
