CAYMAN’S ARK: Giving is Receiving

Pin It

Due to last’s year’s overwhelming response to ARK’s “Giving is Receiving” Project , we are delighted to be organising it again this Christmas. Last year, we received over 600 filled shopping bags and thousands of dollars worth of Christmas gifts for hundreds of families struggling in Cayman. This year, w aim to triple the amount of filled shopping bags and the great news is that we have our own ARK shopping bag! Camana Bay has very  generously sponsored our shopping bags and has also offered the Discovery Centre in Camana Bay as an extra pick up/drop off location.

Our immediate focus will be the very serious issue of hunger. We will make every effort to ensure that we can make available foods and gifts to those that clearly need it during holiday season. ARK is acutely aware that hunger in Cayman is not just a seasonal problem and we are always working in the community to offer
support, resources and compassion. For this reason, ARK will ensure that a portion of the foods collected will be kept for the ARK Pantry. so when the “season” is over, we will have plenty of food remaining to carry many families
into the Spring.
