The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The res­i­dents, staff and man­age­ment of the Cor­ner Stone Home sit­u­ated in Vigie, Cas­tries were proud to re­ceive the gift of a brand new Whirlpool 22 cu ft re­frig­er­a­tor, com­ple­ments Courts St. Lu­cia.

The su­per­store, widely ac­cepted as the na­tion’s largest re­tailer of the world’s best brands in fur­ni­ture, elec­tron­ics and ap­pli­ances, re­ceived a re­quest from the Ben Al­cide Mu­si­cal Min­istries on be­half of the home. The re­quest ex­plained the day to day strug­gles faced by the staff at the home whilst they tried their ut­most best to cre­ate the safest en­vi­ron­ment pos­si­ble that is con­ducive for res­i­dents.

The Cor­ner Stone Home cur­rently caters for so­cially dis­placed and needy per­sons who look to the home for night shel­ter and ac­com­mo­da­tion as well as break­fast, lunch and din­ner.

The need for a new fridge was great and, when the re­quest was re­ceived, Courts hap­pily agreed to as­sist. The news of this do­na­tion came as a sur­prise to Ms Juliet Brath­waite when she was in­formed of the do­na­tion at a pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony held at the com­pany’s new and im­proved Courts Marisule lo­ca­tion on Fri­day April 10th.

In her ad­dress to the guests, the Com­pany’s OECS Public Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Ms Brit­ney Jongue said, “Courts St. Lu­cia is proud to pro­vide as­sis­tance that can make a mean­ing­ful im­pact in the lives of the needy and dis­ad­van­taged in St. Lu­cia. The com­pany is very hum­bled to have re­ceived a re­quest for spon­sor­ship on be­half of the Cor­ner Stone Home and we view this as an op­por­tu­nity to give back to the com­mu­ni­ties where we serve. This do­na­tion came at the most con­ve­nient time for the home and we are sure that by us tak­ing this de­ci­sion to ren­der as­sis­tance, the lives of the res­i­dents and staff will be pos­i­tively im­pacted.”

The new re­frig­er­a­tor will be de­liv­ered di­rectly to the home by the com­pany’s de­liv­ery team and will be a wel­come up­grade for the home. Courts St. Lu­cia is pleased to con­trib­ute to the over­all devel­op­ment of Saint Lu­cia fo­cus­ing on ed­u­ca­tion, health and sports. We sup­port non-profit and non-gov­ern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions around the is­land through sus­tain­able pro­grammes that of­fer the ben­e­fi­cia­ries devel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and a bet­ter qual­ity of life.
