The non-profit organisation “It Could Be Me” founded and registered by Wendy Lett–Stafford was established to assist individuals across Grenada who are challenged in meeting their basic needs.
The old adage “charity begins at home” aptly fits the initiative as Wendy credits the inspiration to her mother and grandmother, who instilled in her, an obligation to help those less fortunate than herself by daily demonstrations of the same.
What started in 2014 as a food drive for the homeless and physically challenged in communities across Grenada, now includes the distribution of walking sticks, walkers and wheelchairs in all the parishes. Since the beginning of the year, “It Could Be Me” has served the parishes of St George (20 January), St John (28 February), St Mark and part of St Patrick (24 April).
The drive continues during the year with deliveries earmarked for the rest of St Patrick and part of St Andrew’s (29 May); the rest of St Andrew and part of St David (26 June); the rest of St David (31 July). In the months of July and August the non-profit will spearhead a personal care drive for distribution to our schools in September. From September to December, “It Could Be Me” will activate the collection of food items for distribution in the month of December.
“It Could Be Me” acknowledges the support of Compass Shipping, Andall’s Associates, GTM, Chef’s Castle, Total Transformation, Clinton Williams (Dayee), Christine Alexis, Vadlyn Gabriel, Earth’s Flavors, the team of volunteers and many others who prefer to remain anonymous.
The non-profit and has to date fed hundreds across Grenada and is grateful for support already received as well as promised and continuing, without which, the outreach would not be possible.
