Massy Stores bring help to North Leeward residents

Individuals and families affected by the recent trough system that ravaged this country’s northern coast received some much needed relief from supermarket chain Massy Stores this week.

On Wednesday, December 7, a team from Massy Kingstown presented care packages to the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), to be distributed to 51 persons in the North Leeward area who were affected by last week’s heavy rains and flooding.{{more}}

Massy Stores team member Petra Plato noted that stores decided to make the gesture in an effort to ease the obvious discomfort that those persons were experiencing.

“Following this recent tragedy, we at Massy Stores wanted to lend a helping hand to those who were affected.

“Our management team communicated with NEMO and we learnt that individuals were affected in the Rose Hall and Rose Bank communities, so we decided to offer our support to them.

“We believe that our contribution to this exercise will alleviate some of the pain and anguish that those who were affected by the weather system over the past week are going through.”

The care packages included essentials such as cleaning products, toiletries, and non-perishable food items, among other things.

The packages will be distributed by NEMO to seven families and 21 individuals who were affected by the weather conditions.

Forbes thanked Massy Stores for the donations and indicated that the persons who will be receiving the items would be more than happy for the assistance, during this time of need.

St Vincent and the Grenadines has been hit by a series of trough systems that have brought destruction to a number of northern communities on both the windward and leeward coasts of the mainland.
