Courts promotion sales proceeds to go to Guadalupe Home for Girls

Proceeds from the sale of bedding products in Courts’ latest promotion ‘Sweet Retreat’, will go to Our Lady of Guadalupe Home for Girls in Cane End, Marriaqua.

Courts commercial manager Lisa Veira announced {{more}}that the Home, which is a safe haven for at-risk girls between the ages 11-18, will receive a percentage of every sale during the May 9 to June 9 campaign.

During this period, customers will receive fabulous offers and savings on selected bedding products, as well as free gifts with purchases.

Customers will also pay nothing down for the first 60 days of purchase and receive discounts on bed frames, bedroom furniture and accessories.

Veira, last Friday, informed the Home director Saylene Dopwell of the news of the donation, which Dopwell said was a blessing in disguise.

“Right now we are really under financial strain and this gesture would come in very handy, so we thank courts in advance.”

Dopwell says the Home, which was founded in 2007, currently houses 16 young females, who have been victims of emotional and physical abuse.

She noted that the donation would go a long way in helping the Roman Catholic institution to provide the girls with much needed assistance to make their lives at the Home somewhat easier.

The Home tries its best to transform lives of the suffering into lives of hope, by providing a safe, caring and nurturing environment for the girls, Dopwell said.

“I would really like to see more people getting involved in the well-being of the home because a lot of persons don’t know that it exists, and it is the only girls’ home in St Vincent and the Grenadines, and once we get publicity, we would probably get more help and we would be able to serve these girls, and by extension, our country better.”

Veira joined with Dopwell in calling for more businesses to offer support and assistance to the Home, in the interest of good corporate service.

“We, at Courts, are pleased to make a contribution to the Guadalupe Home for girls, which we believe would bring value to the lives of the young residents there.

“We hope that others would join in helping this valuable institution, which does its best to protect our young ladies.”
