Campbells Assists Students
Campbells Attorneys-at-Law has donated CI$2,000 to provide school uniforms for youngsters.
Partner J. Ross McDonough presented the cheque to Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) Director Deanna Look Loy at the Scotia Centre law office on Monday (7 September).
Mr. McDonough said that the company is keen to assist children for they are the future of the Cayman Islands.
He noted that uniforms are critical to maintaining standards, instilling discipline and building self-esteem.
"We do not want any child to feel left out; everyone wants to look and feel the same as their peers as they go back to school," Mr. McDonough said.
Thanking Campbells for its ongoing help, Mrs. Look Loy noted that 617 clients had needed uniforms at the start of the school year. She said that it cost some CI$80 to provide one full outfit (including shoes) for one child.
"Most students are required to have more than one uniform, but we do what we can. We are grateful for the companies and the citizens who have assisted; they have enabled us to provide for more children," she said.
Donations go directly into the DCFS' Lifeline Fund to help the students.
