Recently, the Barbados Association of Texas in conjunction with the Carson Small Foundation donated gift baskets of toiletries, canned fruit and care items to the Gordon Cummings District Hospital.
Yvette Layne, field liaison for the two groups, presented the baskets at the hospital. In attendance was Simone Kirton pictured third left, and a second year nursing student at the Barbados Community College who’s the recipient of the Carson Small Memorial Grant. Also present were Dr Leach-Nicholas, Nurse Tiffany Griffith, Nurse Judith Clarke, Mrs Maureen Blenman and Mrs Pansy Griffith of the Carson Small Foundation.
Ms Layne also presented breakfast items to the St James Primary School program while Friends of St. James primary school donated an organ to that institution.
Churches and the Progressive Optimism Club also received food items for the needy. Ms Layne and the Association of Texas look forward to continuing this effort to support charitable causes of Barbados. (WG)
