Veronica’s Way, a nonprofit organization, 501 c3 organization was founded by Fl. Crispin Michael Booker of the Long Island Graduate Chapter of Groove Phi Groove S.F.I. Veronica’s Way was created to offer 3 pillars of service to the community: Technological Literacy, Hunger Elimination, and Educational Support. Named after and in honor of Crispin’s beloved grandmother Veronica L. Paul, the organization strives to continue her great work as a retired school teacher from Grenada, West Indies, that dedicated her life to serving the community. Due to severe economic hardships in her home country of Grenada, Veronica developed a committed practice and passion of feeding the homeless. As a result of these experiences, she made it her life mission to provide resources to those in need. When she migrated to the United States in 1979, this passion did not falter. In fact, she used every opportunity and resource that she had to seek support for families in need. She also made sure to train her family up to always be in the mindset of giving.
In addition to feeding the hungry, Veronica’s Way has committed to bringing technology resources to developing Caribbean islands. An established IT Professional, Fl. Crispin and his team have served 2400 young students by setting up a total of 8 computer labs between Haiti and Jamaica. This October, Veronica’s Way will be on the island of Grenada building several computer labs in well deserving schools and communities. As a member of the travel team, each member gets to fundraise towards the cost of shipping donated (new and gently used) computers that they have rebuilt to the specifications which will allow them to clear Grenadian customs by August.
