Students at Sir John A. Cumber primary school will have fewer growling stomachs during morning class, thanks to a $12,000 donation by Intertrust Cayman to support a PTA-sponsored breakfast program at the school.
The program currently serves 35 children at the school.
Intertrust employees held several internal fundraisers, all targeted at raising money for students at the school. In addition, 14 Intertrust employees volunteered two hours of their time to assist with race time-keeping duties at the school’s annual swimming gala held on Friday, April 27, at the Lions Aquatic Centre in George Town.
Jenna Gaio, a senior client relationship officer at Intertrust, has a son who attends the school and saw the need for the breakfast club.
“I brought this initiative to the Intertrust charity committee, with the intention of obtaining a small donation to get the breakfast programme off the ground,” Ms. Gaio said in a press release. “Intertrust has surpassed, not just my own expectations, but those of the school by sponsoring this entire programme. We are very grateful.”
