Students Donate To Homeless Shelter

admin Ministry News

Students of the Parkinson Memorial School are doing their part in giving back to the community.

During the school’s morning assembly, fourth form student, Stefan Holder, presented a microwave oven to the Clyde Gollop Shelter for Homeless Men, on behalf of his peers.

In accepting the donation, Senior Welfare Officer at the National Assistance Board, James Cummins, expressed satisfaction with the students’ efforts to connect with the older population.

Deputy Principal, Maxine Mayers, also welcomed the students’ initiative, stating that they were eager to participate in such a venture.

"When you give, God blesses you…This school has received a lot of things from institutions, so we can afford to give things in return," Ms. Mayers stated.

Also witnessing the presentation were Acting Manager of the Clyde Gollop Shelter, Valentia Barrow, and supervisor of the shelter, Martin Parris. sharifa.medford@barbados.gov.bb
