How It All Began
The Orchard was founded in November 2019. It all began with 12 single mothers in need of assistance with baby basics such as diapers and formula as well as groceries. Our numbers grew exponentially in 2020 due to the pandemic, our airport closed and thousands of people were unable to work. We quickly found ourselves assisting over 90 families with groceries including fresh fruit and vegetables, and thanks to all our amazing donors and volunteers we were able to meet the challenge. To date many families are still struggling to be financially self sufficient due to almost a year of no earnings so we continue to assist until they are back on their feet.
Through the past 3 years we have created a network of volunteers to identify and assist families and individuals needing temporary or full-time assistance through schools and community outreach in Providenciales, and recently we expanded to North and Middle Caicos. We work closely with our network to identify those most at risk including the elderly, single mums and those struggling with health issues including HIV and cancer.
How It Works
We are a core team of 4 who work closely with our network of volunteers. When a family or individual is identified there is a vetting process in place, once completed we establish their needs and they are added to our monthly Food Drives until such time they no longer require our assistance.
We are a ZERO cost operation allowing 100% of all donations to be allocated towards the purchase of food items including fresh fruit and vegetables. Our volunteers bag groceries specific to each family's needs and then our amazing volunteers collect and distribute. We currently assist in excess of 100 families (370 adults and children) and the demand is ever growing, regrettably.
We are a Government registered non-profit organization (NP.000144). We rely solely on generous donations and support from kind and caring individuals. Thank you for your interest in our Organization, please contact us if you would like to donate, your generosity is so very much appreciated.
