Despite the challenging economic conditions facing Barbados, Chefette Restaurants has “demonstrated its corporate leadership qualities and its commitment to the people of Barbados”. That from Devrol Dupigny, executive director of Crime Stoppers Barbados, as he accepted a financial contribution from Chefette advertising manager Lisa Carter.
Dupigny said Crime Stoppers could not have achieved what it had so far without the support of corporate citizens like the fast-food establishment, whose funding has been used to offset the organization’s promotional and operational expenses.
“Since we started operations five years ago, Crime Stoppers Barbados has received over 1 400 tips. From these tips, the Royal Barbados Police Force has been able to arrest 80 persons and solve 164 cases . . . . We wish to thank the management of Chefette for recognizing the effect and impact of our work, and look forward to a continued good relationship,” Dupigny said.
Carter said Chefette was delighted to give support to Crime Stoppers, which focused heavily on making communities safer.
“We are all aware of the rising numbers in crime and must play our part to protect our community,” she said as she handed over the financial aid.
