Courts do­nates over $50,000 worth of Prod­ucts to Vic­tims of Trop­i­cal Storm Erika

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Af­ter tak­ing stock of the havoc Trop­i­cal Storm Erika wreaked on the Na­ture isle of Do­minica, the man­age­ment of Courts OECS has pledged sup­port of over $50,000 in prod­ucts to the vic­tims who need them most. The re­cip­i­ents were iden­ti­fied by the Red Cross Or­gan­i­sa­tion and, over the next week, Courts will be work­ing closely with the or­gan­i­sa­tion to get the items to those per­sons iden­ti­fied.

The do­na­tion will come in the form of mat­tresses and ta­ble-top cook­ers. Res­i­dents of Pe­tite Sa­vanne, who had to be evac­u­ated as a re­sult of the dam­age caused by the storm, will be amongst the re­cip­i­ents of this huge do­na­tion by Courts. The do­na­tion comes at a cru­cial pe­riod when sleep­ing com­fort and food short­ages are of para­mount con­cern.

Courts will be ship­ping mat­tresses from its oper­a­tions in An­tigua and St.Vin­cent via the Red Cross in these is­lands to get to Do­minica early next week. The do­na­tion of stoves was handed over to the Red Cross in Do­minica this week.

Em­ploy­ees of the su­per­store were not left with­out as­sis­tance as those af­fected were vis­ited by Se­nior Man­age­ment and re­ceived as­sis­tance in the form of house­hold essen­tials and gro­ceries.

Courts would like to ex­tend con­do­lences to the fam­i­lies of per­sons who lost loved ones as a re­sult of the storm as it pledges this sup­port to the peo­ple of Do­minica.

Courts aims to help Do­minica re­turn to some level of nor­malcy and en­cour­ages all to join the ef­forts and pledge sup­port.
