The shelters were activated after heavy torrential rains on Christmas Eve 2013 caused flash floods that destroyed homes and killed nine persons.

Chief executive officer (CEO) of PSCS Camille Crichton, along with a team made up of deputy director at the E.T. Joshua Airport Andrea Best and CRD Holdings employees Keneisha Austin and Laverne Williams, journeyed to North Leeward where they distributed lunches to persons in the two shelters.

They were assisted by members of the Special Services Unit (SSU).

Crichton said that she decided to help out with the feeding of persons at the shelters because she wanted to help out in this time of great need.

“I looked at the situation and I genuinely believe in helping people. After the disaste,r when I read articles and saw photos, I was disheartened when I saw the areas and people affected”, said Crichton on Sunday.

Added Crichton, “People were badly hit and what was even worse is that many of the areas were underprivileged areas. I always believe in sharing and giving back so I thought that besides getting donors and persons to assist that it was important to give from my small business”.

She stressed that she has been operating PSCS for 25 years and making the small gesture is just one way of giving back to the community that has sustained her.

“I hope that other businesses can visit and give assistance in any way they can”, stressed Crichton.

The various shelter managers all thanked Crichton for the friendly gesture that saw over 100 persons being fed.

The trip also saw persons receiving food items, clothing, bedding, toys and other items, compliments the staff of Canouan Resorts Development (CRD) Holdings and the people of Canouan.

Crichton stressed that she will continue with her relief efforts.
