Shoppers at Foster’s Food Fair IGA did their bit recently to help raise funding to improve health care in the Cayman Islands.
Foster’s customers were invited to donate money to the Caring for Life Foundation as they paid for their groceries as part of a “Multiply the Love” campaign by the foundation to reach out to the community to raise money for supplies and equipment needed by the Cayman Islands Health Services Authority.
Foster’s recently presented a cheque for $1,189 to the foundation.
In addition to raising money for the foundation, the programme also helped raise awareness about the importance of Caring for Life and its mission.
“We are pleased to have partnered with the Caring for Life Foundation for this campaign,” said Ayiesha DeCoteau, marketing manager at Foster’s. “Special thanks to our customers for their contributions, which we know will be put to immediate good use.”
“We are delighted to see this kind of community support for the foundation,” said board member Wil Pineau. “The more people understand that the Caring For Life Foundation’s fundraising efforts will benefit all Island residents, the more they have been coming forward to offer help. Any donation, large of small, makes a difference.”
Since it was first launched, the foundation has raised money for several purchases, including equipment to test the hearing of all infants born at the Cayman Islands Hospital. The recent Scotiabank Golf Tournament brought an injection of more than $25,000 to the foundation.
