PINEHILL continues support for YWCA’s Breakfast Club
SEVERAL PARENTS can be assured that this school term, their children will continue to receive a nutritious breakfast thanks to the Young Women’s Christian Association’s (YWCA) Breakfast Club.
The charity recently received a donation of 600 cartons of milk from dairy and juice producers PINEHILL to assist them in continuing their efforts.
In accepting the donation, President of the YWCA Tamita Griffith said that milk is one of the most requested, yet least donated items.
“We applaud the Pine Hill Dairy for their donation and continued support of our Breakfast Club Programme. We provide over 1,000 school children with breakfast daily and milk is one of their most popular requests. This generosity extended by PINEHILL will allow us to respond to the nutritional needs of these children. PINEHILL’s commitment to our association is testimony of their love and care for the children in our communities and we encourage others to follow.”
Category Manager for PINEHILL Shari Boyce said that as the island’s lone dairy processor, PINEHILL has a responsibility to ensure that children, regardless of their means, have access to the nutrients found in milk that can aid in their development.
“PINEHILL prides itself on being a part of any community outreach program that focuses on providing assistance to those who are unable to have access to basic items, especially children,” she said. “Charities such as the YWCA cannot function on their own. They need the support of organizations and individuals to carry out their work and so we are pleased to be able to assist.”
Since being launched in 2007, the YWCA’s Breakfast Club programme serves breakfast to more than 1300 children daily.
