Pack for a Purpose

Making a difference on the island of Nevis

Nisbet Plantation is committed to being a good steward of Nevis island,
preserving its environment and helping the community.

We have adopted local Nevis schools, filling library shelves with children’s books,
providing computers and much more. The efforts of our resort, staff and guests have
had a major impact on the lives of elementary school children on Nevis island.

In December 2009, Nisbet Plantation presented the largest book donation in the program’s
history thanks to the efforts of one guest. Jan Owens, a professor at Carthage College
in Kenosha, Wisconsin, organized a book drive that collected 20 cases of books!

Today, the children are reading at a level two grades higher than they were in 1999 when
the program began. However, the Nevis island schools are still very much in need.

How you can help

Basic school supplies like construction paper, glue sticks, crayons, flash cards, play dough,
new or gently used books (Grades K – 6) and puzzles are always welcome. In addition,
the science lab needs everything from filter paper and rain gauges to anatomy models
and science video cassettes.

For more significant donations and equipment needs, please contact us at 869-469-9325.

To help, bring supplies with you to Nisbet Plantation or mail them to Florida (see below)
where they will be shipped to us. Be sure to use a book rate when shipping to save!
