SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) - The 5th edition of SXM DOET will commence this Friday March 15th, with over 2.000 volunteers being requested to assist 85 local organizations to successfully execute projects that benefit themselves and, in turn, the community.
Projects range from building school benches, gardening, painting murals, clean ups, fixing basketball courts, creating recycle bins, clearing hiking trails, baking cookies, taking special kids out for a fun day out, island tours with the elderly and senior olympics, creating little libraries, restoring a historical site, amongst many many more projects.
Individuals, businesses, schools, social organizations, sporting and church groups, friends and families have joined SXM DOET in the past years to make a positive change on Sint Maarten. Every year more and more persons roll up their sleeves to help assist where it is needed most. Last year a record 2.000 persons assisted with 108 projects, this year will be even bigger and better. There are still a few projects open and looking for some assistance, either on Friday March 15th and/or Saturday March 16th. It's a great way to give back, make an impact, in a short time-span.
