Westminster Brings Christmas to the Bahamas
Westminster Elementary students used their weekly "noisy offering" collection to raise more than $2,600 to bring a Christmas celebration to the children of East Grand Bahama who were devastated by Hurricane Dorian. In addition to collecting their loose change, students and families donated more than $1,400 in Christmas gifts.
The Flowers family, parents Jason and Nichole, and Prince '28 and Alexandra '29, graciously arranged for transport of 25 boxes full of gifts and food, as well as two larger coolers with 12 turkeys and 12 hams. Pilot and WCS alum Joe Stewart '78 flew ES Principal Caleb Lopez and son Andy '27 to attend the celebration and to bring ornaments for the Christmas trees.
"We are overwhelmed with the generosity of everyone who came together to make this day possible for the children in East Grand Bahama," said Lopez. "God's hand was evident every step of the way and we were grateful to share our blessings."
