Deloitte and DCFS celebrate record-breaking Holiday drive
The firm’s 12th annual charity raised over CI$5,700 for local children and families
George Town, Cayman Islands – January 14, 2019
During the month of December 2018, Deloitte staff and partners held a series of fundraising events that set a new record for their annual Christmas drive, raising $5,785 for the Department of Children and Family Services.
The drive, organized by members of the firm’s Community Ambassador Team, funded 60 books and over 100 gifts from the wish lists of children from 4 months to 17 years old, together with holiday meals and vouchers for many of their families.
Carrie Brown, Deloitte Partner leading the initiative, commented “The Holiday season is a particularly joyful time of the year for many people in our community. However, unfortunately not every family has the opportunity to celebrate this tradition with gifts and hot meals. Every year, the firm’s team of “elves” works with staff to raise funds, to ensure at least a few more families get their Holiday wishes. I am extremely proud of this effort, and thankful to DCFS for making us part of it.”
“The Department of Children and Family Services are most appreciative of partnering with Deloitte again last year. The Christmas holidays are the most festive celebration and our clients have benefitted significantly from the warm generosity extended from the firm’s staff and management. Thanks for bringing Christmas cheer to those in need.” said Vanda Powery, drive coordinator and Community Development officer at DCFS.
During 2018, Deloitte held monthly charitable drives at their Cayman Office to benefit different local associations. The firm raised and donated over CI$20,000 for causes related to education, children and family support, promoting overall health and well-being in the community, and protecting Cayman’s environment and heritage.
