The Department of Commerce and Investment (DCI), as part of its
social responsibility, will volunteer at the Cayman Islands Red
On Monday, 30 May, DCI will be sending staff members to
participate in the Red Cross's Thrift Shop Community Outreach
Programme from 1:30pm to 4:30pm. Participants will be handling
multiple tasks at the shop, from unloading and sorting donations to
helping display items for sale.
DCI Director Ryan Rajkumarsingh said that as May marks Red Cross
month, it was a perfect time to launch the Department's
community service initiatives.
'While DCI has a tremendous responsibility to regulate local
commerce, we also recognise we can make an equally positive
contribution to Cayman's community spirit; by beginning to
partner with various non-profit entities, such as the Red Cross. We
hope to create a shared value on the importance of business and
society', he said.
The Red Cross works closely with a number of Government agencies
to ensure those in need are provided with basic household items,
from clothing to appliances. For example, clothing and shoes are
provided to clients of the Needs Assessment Unit, prisoners at Her
Majesty's Prison Northward making court appearances, and
migrants held at the Immigration Detention Centre.
The thrift shop programme, which has been around for nearly two
decades, facilitates shop sales, which generate necessary funding
for the Red Cross' day-to-day operation and other programmes
such as Disaster Management and HIV and AIDS Awareness
Mr Rajkumarsingh added that DCI will continue its efforts to be
a good corporate citizen by volunteering for non-profit entities
similar to the Red Cross.
