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.

RIGHT NOW — we're restocking our supplies with the many resources we provide throughout the year, from food to daily hygiene products.  And
our financial support, in the form of paying electric bills and the like is in full swing.

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."

We need them desperately as the mainstays of the hundreds of Holiday meals we'll be pro-viding.

Of course, there's always a need for all the other staples we provide.  Often on a stretched budget, people would otherwise go hungry so they can make their rent or utility payment.

Throughout the year, the list of needs is long.  You can bring in food to help re-stock our shelves.  Make financial contributions. Volunteer your time or skill, either on a regular basis or for special projects.  Support another organization's effort to help Deep Well. Or organize a "Help Deep Well" event in your club or neighborhood.
