The Maples and Calder Corporate Services Department (“MCS”) recently held another successful bake sale for staff, raising CI$2,250 for local charity Feed Our Future.
“We are so pleased to have been able to assist another valuable cause with one of our bake sales,” said Allison Smith, Head of Corporate Services. “The amount raised really is a testament to the generosity and community-mindedness of our staff, many of whom donated above and beyond the price of the sweets we had for sale that day.”
The Department’s biannual bake sales have raised in excess of CI$10,000 since 2013, with proceeds from previous events going to other organisations on-island such as Cayman’s ARK, the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and Meals on Wheels.
Feed Our Future’s primary mission is to solve childhood hunger throughout the Cayman Islands. Established in mid-2011, Feed Our Future helps to promote and elevate nutritional needs of at-risk children through funding of nutritionally balanced, low cost or free school meals to children in need at both public and private schools. The monies raised will also support educational workshops on nutrition, shopping and cooking for families.
