Give Back: Pack a Pound assists 2 schools in western Belize!

Billy White Seventh Day Adventist & Duck Run 2 New Life schools receive school supplies from Chaa Creek’s Pack a Pound initiative!

It is with great pleasure that we announce another successful venture of our Pack-a-Pound Initiative!

Our Pack-a-Pound program invites our guests to exchange a pound of luggage to pack school supplies instead of clothing items, or by sending us the items via mail, we then pack them up in pounds and take them to the schools of the villages surrounding San Ignacio and Santa Elena towns.

This time our Pack a Pound initiative saw the Chaa Creek team, consisting of our program coordinator Ms Denise Duran, Social Media Admin Jared Bradley and our Driver Allan Chan who is also one of our naturalist guides, make their way past Bullet Tree Falls, Cayo to the villages of Billy White and Duck Run 2.

At Billy White Seventh Day Adventist School the team were greeted by Principal Mr. Rick Avella and his wonderful students who had just finished their term exams and were eager to see what the contents of the bags were! Mr. Avella explained the school had just over 100 students and the supplies consisting of: pens, pencils, crayons, water paint, rulers, coloring books, children’s novels and more were well received and would be put to good use.

The next destination after Billy White was Duck Run 2, the adjacent village where the students were on afternoon break when the van arrived. The children were eager to meet the new visitors and happy to pose for pictures with their new stationery and even pictures just for fun.

I saw them posing while I adjusted my exposure; CHEESE!
