It’s that time of the year again! Time to gather up your loose change, empty your coin jar and give from the heart as we come together as a community to raise much needed funds for the Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels through their annual ¢hange for ¢hange Coin Drive. Over 200 volunteers will be stationed around Grand Cayman on March 27th and 28th collecting coin, cash and donations of any amount for Meals on Wheels. Last year’s Coin Drive helped to raise enough funds to provide over 6,000 nutritious hot meals to seniors and other vulnerable members of our community thanks to the generous donations of the community! Your loose change may not seem like much right now, but when we come together it all adds up to make a huge difference and serve those in need.
Meals on Wheels, General Manager, Jennifer West is excited to be a part of this years coin drive “I am overwhelmed by the response for volunteers by the public at large but also by companies who will allow their staff to volunteer for 2 hours to collect on our behalf, we have volunteers of all ages supporting this fundraiser and look forward to full community support to make it a success to meet our goal.” Collection locations include all Fosters locations, Cayman National Banks, Cost U Less, G.T. Post Office, Book Nook, Atlantic Kids, Kirk Home Centre, Hurley’s Supermarket, Books and Books, A.L. Thompsons, Butterfield, Kirk Market and Royal Bank.
Ms. West went on to say that “The goal of this year’s coin drive is to raise $30,000.00, that is what it costs to provide meals to the 250+ people that we serve for a month!” Join Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels, Davenport Development and Radio Cayman in the fight to end senior hunger in the Cayman Islands!
