CTL Home Center said that it has once again assisted the education sector with the recent donation of approximately $5000.00 worth of merchandise to Bregado Flax Educational Center (BFEC) Secondary Division on Virgin Gorda.
According to the company, the donation included, but was not limited to fourteen standing fans, lights and a refrigerator.
The school is still recovering from the damage caused by Hurricane Irma and the air condition units are among the many things that need repairing or replacing.
When news of the school’s urgent needs reached CTL Home Center’s Managing Director Michael Thomas, he said donating the items was an immediate and easy decision for him.
“These students, despite the many post-Irma challenges, are still trying their best to continue their education and we the business community should help to make the environment comfortable for both students and teachers," he stated.
Mr. Thomas noted that an investment in education is an investment in our future and encouraged other companies to follow suit.
Chief Operations Officer, David Thomas and CTL Virgin Gorda staff member, Trevoi Adams made the donations to Alexander Weekes, Senior Teacher/Administrator and Hilroy George, Principal for BFEC Secondary Division at the school’s campus on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018.
Mr. George thanked CTL for the donation as he pointed out how uncomfortable the teachers and students were in the hot classrooms.
With CTL’s policy of good corporate citizenship, over the years the company has consistently donated to the education sector in the BVI.
This year CTL donated laptop computers to five outstanding teachers by the Ministry of Education & Culture, reusable bags to teachers at the Ministry’s Annual Teachers’ Training, gift certificates to all teachers at the Robinson O’Neal Primary School on Virgin Gorda, cleaning supplies to students at H. Lavity Stoutt Community College and tablets to students participating in BVI Finance’s Little Race to Save.
Other donations this year were made to BVI Diabetes Association, St. Georges Episcopal Church, East End Long Look Seniors, Festival Booth Owners and Rotary Festival Floupe, along with CTL’s annual father’s day giveaway.
The company stated that CTL Home Center’s management and staff take their corporate social responsibility very seriously and are proud and honoured to give back to our community that we work and live in. The education sector and our seniors remain the main focus of CTL Home Center’s support.
