Students of form 5 Integrated at the Girls High School, handed over a large container box of donated items to the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Red Cross Society on Friday.
This phase marked the culmination of a clothing drive spearheaded by the students, which began in December 2023.
On hand to receive the items were the President of the SVG Red Cross, Alston Anderson and the Welfare Officer, Glenda Conliffe.
The Red Cross, which has a large community footprint, will re-distribute the items to people in eight different communities across St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
“Charity begins at home and we welcome and encourage the humanity of these students who would have thought of persons less fortunate than themselves and who actually went out of their way to assist,” Anderson said.
Form teacher, Tamara Toney also noted the act of generosity from her class and looked on with pride as they handed over the items to the Red Cross.
Conliffe noted that a report will be provided to the students on how many persons would have been reached by their generous act.
