Scores of parents, some with children in tow collected donated school supplies at the Albury Sayle Primary School on Friday August 27th, 2021. According to Principal Shirlean Wallace the back to school drive will go a long way in ensuring equity for all of the school’s five hundred plus students. Public Schools open with virtual learning on Monday August 30th due to the spike in Covid 19 cases.

Computer Science teacher Shanique Taylor said the Diggiss Foundation was the moving force among other corporate partners who donated the three hundred backpacks complete with books, pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, sharpeners as well as a lunch pack with healthy fruits and drinks. Principal Wallace admitted that a number of students never signed up for virtual classes in the last school year. She said through a partnership with the police they intend to go door to door to reconnect with those students. She appealed to parents still in need of supplies for students enrolled there to contact the school located on Nassau Street.

During a brief presentation in the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture’s Conference Room on Friday, November 3rd, 2021, Senior Education Officer for the Sports Unit at the Ministry of Education and Technical and Vocational Training, Evon Wisdom thanked IL Cares Foundation for its generous contribution, noting that it is one of many philanthropic acts by the organisation as it has sponsored numerous national sporting events involving students.

“In a few years we will see the manifestation of IL Care’s support through the success of the athletes,” said Mr. Wisdom.

The Foundation’s public relations director Kenny Mackey while presenting the cheque reiterated his organisation’s support of the nation’s youth. “I am pleased and privileged to support our youth. It allows children to commune and battle in the spirit of excellence,” Mr. Mackey exclaimed.

The benevolent donation will afford many of the athletes the opportunity to travel to the United States to attend basketball championships. Team members from St. George’s High, Sunland Baptist High and Tabernacle Baptist Academy are included in the beneficiaries.
