GREAT HARBOUR, Jost van Dyke, VI- CCT’s Back to School campaign, held territory wide, wrapped up on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 on Jost van Dyke.

CCT’s Public Relation and Marketing Coordinator, Ms Jerilee T. Hopkins said, “We provided over 1,000 students with backpacks filled with school supplies and it was heartwarming to see the students’ response and appreciation which really showed us that we were really meeting a need in the community.”

“We intend to continue this campaign yearly and we thank all for the support and welcoming into each community,” Ms Hopkins added.

The two-week long Back to School drive was held from August 31 to September 11, 2019 on Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke, along with presentations to Brilliant Hands and Minds Learning Centre; Sea Cows Bay Methodist Church; Elmore Stoutt Junior High School and ZCCR Radio Station Back to School Drive.
