The children of deceased Melissa Eastmond received several baskets of food items, including toiletries and toys from the employees of KM2 Solutions.
The young mother died three years ago.
Cora Eastmond was in tears today as she received about five baskets filled with items, which were generously donated by staff members of the Harbour Road-based company.
Eastmond told Barbados TODAY she was overjoyed by the donation, which she assured, would benefit her grandchildren, including twin boys Jaylen and Jayden and their sister Jelissa.
“I feel good. The things would go a long way mostly for the children. The children will welcome them. I know when the children see them they will be happy. I will make sure the things stretch as much as possible,” Eastmond said.
Trainer at KM2 Solutions Esther Forde said the members of her department, after being touched by Eastmond’s story about raising her daughter’s children which was published in Barbados TODAY, decided to start a project titled “Cora’s Cause”.
“We would have gotten together and decided to do this for Cora because when we read the story it was heart-wrenching and we wanted to see if we can reach out. KM2 is a company that likes to know that they are helping others. This is just for starters. We have a lot of other stuff going down the line and so we decided to make this presentation today.
“Right now we have a box for support and everybody in KM2 would have contributed something for the kids that are four years and younger, including food stuff, sanitary items, and anything that we think she would need to get through day-by-day,” Forde said. (AH)
