Recipients of the CCT’s 2018 Back-to-School campaign

PRESS RELEASE: CCT’s Back to School campaign, held territory-wide, wrapped up on Friday, August 31 on Jost Van Dyke.

The two-week long Back-to-School campaign hosted a distribution drive on Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke along with presentations to the Rainbow Children’s Home and the Youth Empowerment Programme, successfully distributing over 1,000 backpacks and school supplies to the children in the BVI.

CCT’s Marketing Manager Mr Recaldo Richardson stated: “We did the Back to School Drive and presentations as part of our CCT Cares initiative with the intention to play our part in giving back to the community. We have never done a territory-wide back to school drive, and this year we hosted it on the four main islands attracting an overwhelming turnout.”

“We intend to make this an annual campaign to assist in ensuring that students are one step closer to being equipped for the start of the school year while continuing to make a positive impact in the community,” Mr Richardson expressed.

CCT will remain active and involved in the community supporting the BVI in the rebuilding process along with tackling issues that affect the territory. To view highlights from CCT’s Back to School Drive visit CCT BVI Facebook page.

    CCT could have order a backpack to last a week and not 1 day. A plastic bag is stronger than the backpack they are distributing and trying to make it in news. Hhh
