Mayor encourages more charitable donations

Mayor of Castries,  Peterson Francis, wants businesses and members of the public to  shoulder their social responsibility by making more donations to charitable causes, a release from the Mayor’s office has said.

Francis, with the support of Mr. Leslie Jn Baptiste of Eagle Freight Brokerage, last week donated a barrel containing food and grocery items to Cornerstone House.

Communications Manager Jason Hullingseed and Councillor Augustin Victor were among those present during the presentation.

The Mayor was quoted as saying that it is very heartwarming and humbling when such donations are made.

“We are committed to being a good citizen and should never take things for granted. We encourage corporate entities and the wider public to contribute a lot more. We must do some reflection. Giving back to the Cornerstone House means a lot, because if it were us placed in a situation such as this, I am sure that they would have given back to us.”

 Francis intends to continue similar support to other charitable organizations, the release from his office stated.
