Assisting the most vulnerable
“The food bank supports the most vulnerable members of our community which includes the elderly, unemployed, the sick and shut-in, and single-parent homes,” Ms Lloyd said.
The food bank is located at Road Town Wholesale, which Director Lloyd said is one of the BVI Red Cross’ long-time donors.
“The BVI Red Cross is grateful to the unwavering support of donors like Road Town Wholesale.”
Road Town Wholesale recently donated to the BVI Red Cross food bank in time for the Easter weekend.
Those supplies are being given to persons in need; deliveries began on Saturday, April 11, 2020.
