From cradle to cane is a nonprofit organization catering for people from school aged children to the elderly.
The organization was founded seven years ago by Ali George, who was inspired from the unfortunate circumstance of losing a close friend.
The organization has two chapters’ one in Brooklyn New York and in Grenada at Westerhall St. David.
Cradle to Cane is contributing to the back to school needs of over 200 students this year.
Since it was founded, the New York chapter has been shipping supplies to Grenada for distribution, in time for the start of the school year in September .
Ms. George says their focus is on getting students to understand the importance of healthy eating habits.
The initiative this year was as a result of fundraisers and the generosity of Grenadians in New York.
The organization intends to embark on a cultural exchange between students from New York and Grenada.
In addition, swim classes, piano lessons and modern dance classes will be added to the already existing package.
