Global Directories/Barbados Yellow Pages Gives Solid Support To YWCA’s Breakfast Club
Global Directories/Barbados Yellow Pages are continuing to make their presence felt in the community with their most recent donation to a very worth programme.
Global Directories/Barbados Yellow Pages have come on board to lend their support to the Young Woman’s Christian Association (YWCA) of Barbados and specifically, its Breakfast Club programme, with a generous contribution of $20,000.
Now entering its 6th year of operation the Breakfast Club provides a well balanced breakfast to over 900 school children, with meals being served to approximately 100 children daily at the YWCA’s Headquarters located in Deacons, St. Michael.
Pam Roach, Marketing Manager of Global Directories/Barbados Yellow Pages, said this is the first of an initial 3 year commitment to support the programme which has grown significantly since the Breakfast Club first opened its doors on January 8, 2007:
“We have witnessed the growth of the Breakfast Club since its inception and wanted to play a role in ensuring the programme continued to provide this most valuable service to the community. Global Directories/Barbados Yellow Pages remains committed to the overall development of the Barbadian society and this includes the daily needs of our youth. We will therefore continue to provide any support we can to the YWCA as well as other programmes which we deem worthy of similar support.”
In addition to those which are served at the YWCA’s Headquarters, meals are packed and collected by schools which have expressed a need for breakfast to accommodate those children who for various reasons are not provided with this meal at home.
The donation made by Global Directories/Barbados Yellow Pages will also go a long way towards purchasing supplies used at satellite clubs run by the YWCA at schools around the island.
