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.
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. In our new facility, we have room for a self-select area, where clients can shop for their families. we continue to deliver food to clients who are unable to come in.
