Immigration staff presents donations to Alta Solomon on behalf of the NCVO.

After numerous public pleas for assistance, Chief Immigration Officer Franz Manderson encouraged his staff to contribute to the worthy cause.

A number of items such as clothes, shoes, house supplies and children items were collected and taken to the NCVO.

Alta Solomon, National Council of Voluntary Services youth and community worker thanks the Immigration Department for their contribution in taking on such a big roll collecting items.

‘Our projects rely a great deal on the donations of our community, and we are very grateful for everyone’s efforts,’ she said

Mr. Manderson was delighted that staff was able to make a difference in the lives of others through the donations.

He also encouraged staff to volunteer and assist with community projects, as this was just one more example of them reaching out.

The items will be used to assist projects at the Nadine Andreas Residential Foster Home, the Jack & Jill Nursery & Early Learning Centre, ‘Miss Nadine’s’ Pre-School and the NCVO Caring Cousins Welfare Scheme.
