Tourism officials and the Cayman Islands’ tourism mascot Sir Turtle have joined forces to launch a Christmas food drive, inviting civil servants to donate non-perishable food items at the Government Administration Building.
The Cayman Islands Ministry and Department of Tourism will donate the food to the St. George’s Anglican Church’s pantry. From there, the food will be distributed to those in need during the holiday season and beyond, organizers said in a press release.
Sir Turtle was on hand to thank those who donated, and pose with them for photos behind the “Insta-Caymankind” graphic. Participants are encouraged to post their photos on social media with the hashtag #CaymanKindAWish.
The peg-legged turtle is Cayman’s unofficial tourism mascot, as well as being the symbol of Cayman Airways.
Anyone interested in donating can drop goods at the Department of Tourism, on the third floor of the Government Administration Building, throughout the holiday season.
