Organizers of a “Stuff The Bus” initiative to donate school supplies to hundreds of children are inviting local companies to take part.
Caribbean Alliance Insurance has joined with Hurley’s Media for the drive, which is accepting donations until Aug. 20. The goal is to fill a big yellow school bus with basic school supplies, such as paper, crayons, scissors, pencils, pens, glue, folders, erasers and markers.
The insurance company initially appealed to the public to join the drive, but is now asking companies to coordinate internal donation drives with their staff.
“This year, thanks to community-minded individuals and a partnership with another business, our school supply drive is bigger and better than ever,” said Aleisha Lalor, branch manager of Caribbean Alliance Insurance.
“By … contributing to ‘Stuff the Bus,’ business leaders can show our collective strength as corporate partners and investors in our community,” she said.
All donated supplies will be presented to the Department of Children and Family Services, the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and the Needs Assessment Unit, for distribution to children most in need.
Donation boxes are at Cost-U-Less, Foster’s Food Fair IGA – Countryside, Lee’s Office Supplies, Office Supply, Hurley’s Media Group office and Caribbean Alliance office at 203 Alissta Towers.
