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.

A variety of repair and improvement services, all provided by volunteers, are considered on an individual needs basis.  All situations are researched and determinations made in a knowledgeable, understanding and fair manner.

Deep Well has long fulfilled this basic need — a need that can occur any time of the year.  Our pantry is stocked with non-perishables and our refrigerators and freezers store meats, vegetables and dairy products.

Providing needed support to families in need often means special support for children ages 1 through 12.
