The Falcons Boys’ Club along with Pat’s Uniform and Control Chemicals, made presentations of uniforms to several students on the island on Friday, September 15 at Pat’s downtown store location.
One of the donations went to the Green family and the other went to a chosen student of the East End Primary School.
Darrin Rolle, Director of the Falcons Boys’ Club explained that the Green family had four children to prepare for school, and they were affected by tornadoes caused by Hurricane Irma.
He added that the club believes in giving back to the community.
“The Falcons Boys’ Club is a community based organization that believes in being involved in the community,” he said.
He added that they conduct initiatives like this as a way to serve God, being that they are a Christian organization as well.
Dorthea Gomez, Chief Welfare Officer in the Department of Social Services noted that they were asked to take part in the presentation by Rolle and were pleased to do so.
The Green family was recommended by Social Services to the Falcons Boys’ Club.
Rolle thanked the various companies that were able to participate in the donations, as well.
Michael Sweeting, of Pat’s Uniform said that the store is always willing to participate in giving back to the community.
Dorothy Lewis, principal of the East End Primary School expressed gratitude to the club and the other companies for the presentation to a female student who was in need of uniforms.
“We’re very grateful and thankful of this kind gesture,” she said.
Not only will the students receive their donation, but the schools will be treated to a Pizza Day as well. Lewis added that the students would be treated to the special day, sometime this week.
Crystal Lowe of Control Chemicals was also happy to help the youngsters in need.
