Renwick & Company Ltd Provides Assistance to the Upton Gardens Girls’ Centre
On Friday July 10th representatives from Renwick & Company Ltd made a donation of Supreme bleach, Harbor Bay toilet paper, Distinction milk and cleaning supplies to the Upton Gardens Girls’ Centre. This donation is part of the company’s Supreme bleach “protect and disinfect” campaign which has the stated goal of donating Supreme bleach and cleaning supplies to every single school on island.
The Uptown Gardens Girls’ Centre was identified for assistance because of its long standing service to at-risk young ladies. For 35 years the centre has provided a safe place for young ladies in need of protection by offering a place of daily residence, the opportunity to continue education,positive social interaction and counselling or rehabilitation programmes, where necessary.
In her brief remarks Mrs. Prisca St. Paul of the Upton Gardens Girls’ Centre expressed her profound gratitude for the timely donation and stated that the ultimate goal is to provide full-time lodging for the young ladies so that the centre can become a fully-fledged juvenile home.
The representative of Renwick & Company Ltd pledged the company’s further support through assistance with the agriculture programme and will partner with local club VSADC to donate football gear and equipment to the girls.
This donation from Renwick & Company Ltd was coordinated by Miss Sharon Williams who is a major benefactor for the Upton Garden Girls’ Centre.
