Co-operators General Insurance presents vouchers to support needy

Yesterday, Co-operators General Insurance Company Limited presented $100 shopping vouchers to a number of groups who will be donating them to the needy and vulnerable in their spheres.


The Ann Hill School, the Household Mitigation Unit and the Deighton Griffith School Panthers (Breakfast Club) received the donations from Co-operators General Insurance Company Limited at their headquarters in Upper Collymore Rock. General Manager of the company Anton Lovell explained that Co-operators General Insurance decided that they needed to play a part in supporting those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, including the surrounding neighbourhoods.


“We decided we need to play our part as a good community minded company and a good corporate citizen as we look around and see what is happening in this island today. Mainly because of the COVID-19 experience, not only companies but [what] families are experiencing at this time,” said Lovell.


The Household Mitigation Unit was represented by the head of the unit, Corey Lane, and members of the DGS Panthers squad were present to accept the donation. Principal of the Ann Hill School, Emelda Belle thanked the company for their donation, alluding to the fact that Co-operators General Insurance had been a blessing to the school over the past five to six years.


She explained that the COVID-19 situation had affected everyone and families were hardest hit.


“During this pandemic, we realised that we were not in a vacuum, it affected the livelihoods of some of our families. As you would imagine, restaurants are closed, tourism is down and these things did impact our students and their families and so we are very grateful to Co-operators General Insurance who has continued to be with us as a community partner,” explained Belle.


Lovell also highlighted that members of the Pinelands and Wildey communities had also been recipients of vouchers as well and persons had already collected some of the packages from the headquarters. (AS)
