Shipping and Distribution Guidelines

The Sandals Foundation is willing to assist in ensuring your in-kind donation reaches the island(s) and is responsible for all costs related to items being shipped from Miami, FL to the islands/resorts through Hospitality Purveyors Incorporated (HPI). Donors are responsible for all shipping expenses to HPI in Miami, FL. All donations sent must be clearly labeled for the Sandals Foundation and have a packing list and a Commercial Invoice stating the value of each item and should be addressed to:

Hospitality Purveyors Inc (HPI)
Attn: Lucy Atkins for the Sandals Foundation
5000 S.W. 72nd Avenue, Suite 111
Miami, FL 33155
Tel: 305-667-9725

Prior to shipping items to HPI, notification of intent should be sent via email to LAtkins@hpimiami.com to advise of the incoming cargo. Included in this email correspondence should be identification as to which island and which specific resort and/or project these items are intended for. For example: Sandals Whitehouse, Culloden School project. Additionally, the Sandals Foundation will be responsible for all costs related to clearance and local distribution of donated items being shipped through HPI only. Please note, due to Customs regulations, these items are shipped in bulk and there is no guarantee of date of shipment to the islands/resorts.

Alternatively, should guests be visiting the islands and wish to bring in goods on their own accord, the Sandals Foundation works closely with Pack for a Purpose to accept up to 5 lbs of approved supplies at the resort's Front Desk for local distribution. Please refer to the link on this website or visit www.packforapurpose.org for more information.

Finally, should guests wish to visit charity while on island, transportation is at their expense, or at the discretion of the resort's General Manager or the Sandals Foundation.
