The Deep Well Project:
Islanders Helping Islanders for Over 40 Years

The Deep Well Project was founded in 1973.  Since then, it has been supported by individuals, businesses, religious institutions, foundations, clubs, schools and various other organizations.  It is the island's charity — truly islanders helping their neighbors in need — and reflects the caring community in which we live.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

WHAT'S HAPPENING

 

FROM EMERGENCY FOOD TO HOME REPAIRS TO A DRIVE TO THE DOC TO COVERING A RENT PAYMENT. 

Our emergency services run the gamut, from rent and utility payments to holiday dinners.  For a complete rundown of what we do and how we help on a year-round basis, click on the "How We Help" menu at the top.

You can read some true stories about how Deep Well helps -- just  go to "Your Donations At Work" in the menu above under "How You Can Help."

THE HOLIDAYS ARE JUST AROUND THE CORNER -- AND THAT MEANS THANKSGIVING DINNERS . . . AND TOYS!
We're entering our busiest time of the year, when the holidays bring great hope and cheer, but often exacerbate the needs of the many people we help.
It all starts with the need for hundreds of Thanksgiving meals.  We're happy to say you've already responded to our plea for turkeys.  In fact, we have all we need for thanksgiving.  But we still need the following for full Thanksgiving dinners:  
— canned fruit and applesauce
— stuffing
— turkey gravy, in envelopes or jars
— cornbread mix
— mashed potatoes, in packets or a box

Then we need toys -- the earlier the better -- so we can stock the shelves of our Santa Shop that has so successfully engaged those we help, giving dignity and a sense of caring to go along with the toys, books and clothes for their children that their situation would otherwise make impossible.

Check out our "Santa Shop" page for a list of the kinds of toys that we'll need for children ages 1-12.

 

FINALLY, WE'VE COMPLETED OUR RELOCATION -- NOW AT 80 CAPITAL DRIVE  
Thanks to the efforts of our many volunteers and some very special people and organizations in the community, we moved into our new facility at 80 Capital Drive, just off Marshland Road.  

The layout enables us to have more space in the client reception areas, a new "Resource Center" (a space that is just beginning to evolve), the Food Pantry, the Livable Housing and Furniture/ Household Goods storage areas.  In addition, some "flexible space" will enable us to have a less hectic Santa Shop.
