Volunteers with the Community Services Department of the Adventist Church sort donated clothing and linen for a shipment to the storm-ravaged Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Community Services Department of the Adventist Church is preparing a shipment of clothing, bed and bath linen, and non-perishable goods to aid in the post-hurricane recovery efforts in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

“To accommodate persons who wish to contribute but have so far not had an opportunity, the deadline for donations has been extended to Tuesday, November 28,” said Community Services Assistant Director Angela Hall.

Persons interested in donating may take items to the attention of Mrs. Hall at Cayman Academy. Mrs. Hall said that the container does have quite a bit of space available to the community and invites everyone who is interested to act on this opportunity as soon as possible.

In addition, funds may be deposited at the Royal Bank of Canada, to ADRA account number 500-6234, or may be dropped off at the Conference Office, 209 Walkers Road.

“While the Turks and Caicos’ recovery is progressing well, the population still has pressing needs,” said President of the Adventist Conference Shion O’Connor. “We have been fortunate here in Cayman, but we are only too well aware of the human suffering that results from the impacts of major hurricanes that many times extend into months and even years following the strike.”

Pastor O’Connor said that the church felt a duty to reach out a helping hand, and invites the community to share in the rewards of giving.

The distribution of the goods and financial contributions will be administered by the Adventist Disaster and Relief Agency (ADRA) in the Turks and Caicos.
