Announcements MaplesFS Nourishes Young Minds This Summer
17 Aug 2015
Each year the Cayman Islands Public Library Service holds a summer reading challenge in an effort to keep children reading throughout the holidays and further develop their love of reading. Seeking to grow a community of lifelong learners who enjoy reading a variety of quality literature for pleasure, the challenge encourages children between the ages of 16-17 to read a minimum number of hours each week. Last year, 74 readers completed the challenge by reading a grand total of 905 books over 1,220 hours. Assisting in the success of the programme this summer, MaplesFS on behalf of its clients donated US$2,500 towards the purchase of prizes for children who complete the reading challenge.
MaplesFS also donated CI$1,500 to Cayman Cricket’s two-week community summer camp. The free camp provides children ages 8-16 with a host of sporting and academic activities to keep them healthy and entertained over the summer months. "Sports as a whole, and cricket in particular, can offer many benefits to young children as it helps instil discipline, encourages strategic thinking and last but not least physical activity," said Abali Hoilett, Cayman Cricket Executive Member. "The camp is a unique opportunity to help shape the lives of Cayman’s future, benefitting youths already directly involved in the game as well as introducing the sport to the wider community."
A team of MaplesFS volunteers also went back to school to support the National Council of Voluntary Organisations ("NCVO"), a local not-for-profit charitable organisation dedicated to the care, education and wellbeing of children in Cayman. This was the third year that MaplesFS was invited to help the NCVO's two educational programmes, Miss Nadine's Pre-School and The Jack and Jill Nursery, prepare for the upcoming school year. More than 35 MaplesFS volunteers rolled up their sleeves to paint, clean, move furniture and setup classrooms in anticipation of the new term so that the schools' 84 students could make a fresh start to the school year. The volunteers repainted and reorganised classroom furniture, as well as refreshing exterior walls and hallways throughout the school.
Earlier this year, MaplesFS clients gifted US$4,625 to the NCVO in benefit of outdoor recreational equipment and a MaplesFS literacy alcove at the Nadine Andreas Residential Foster Home, as well as general supplies for the foster home, pre-school and nursery.
"MaplesFS is grateful for the opportunity to sponsor local children’s activities and initiatives, particularly those that promote education, health and wellness," said Scott Somerville, Chief Executive Officer at MaplesFS. "There is nothing more important than supporting the development of our youth, and initiatives run by not-for-profit organisations such as these provide an essential resource and much needed support to Cayman’s future generations."
Over the last quarter, MaplesFS on behalf of its clients and staff dress down funds has also donated US$21,250 to Cayman HospiceCare’s music therapy programme and full circle grief counselling, as well as US$13,812.50 to the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre towards the refurbishment of its existing building, the development of a new website and the broadcast of public service announcements on national television. The firm also donated US$1,750 to the Special Needs Foundation Cayman in sponsorship of two months of the organisation’s respite care programme and US$6,250 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands towards mentorship training, tutoring sessions and extracurricular activities.
