Clarence Thomas Home Center brought Christmas cheer to children across the BVI as it continues to give back to the community. This week CTL Home Center presented gifts to over 100 primary school students who were affected by Hurricane Irma.
The students were recommended by teachers and principals as those most in need after the Category 5 Hurricane hit the BVI. All students at the Eslyn Henly Richeiz Learning Center were also included in the gift giveaway. CTL staff matched gifts according to the age and gender of each child selected.
CTL Virgin Gorda Staff along with teachers delivered gifts to children on the sister islands and Santa joined CTL’s Tortola staff at the main store at Fish Bay on Saturday, December 23, 2017 to present gifts to children selected from schools on Tortola.
Managing Director Michael Thomas said “It means so much to CTL Home Center to bring joy to the hearts to these children because most of them have lost all their worldly belongings. It’s such a wonderful feeling to see their eyes light up when they see Santa and receive their gifts. We felt in our very small way that we helped the children and their parents to have an enjoyable Christmas despite the burden brought on by Hurricane Irma.
CTL staff said “presenting the gifts along with Bell’s Café tasty treats to the children, parents, and teachers was a humbling and satisfying experience. The smiles and the expressions on the faces of children brought us so much joy”
CTL Home Center thanks the many principals and teachers who assisted in making this initiative a success.
