VICEROY DONATES TO ALWYN RICHARDSON SCHOOL
Viceroy Anguilla successfully completed its 2nd year of “Backpacks and Givebacks” program where resort guests filled backpacks with school supplies for the Alwyn A. Richardson Primary School in Anguilla and for other children on the island. Children grades K through 6 will receive these back-to-school backpacks in September to prepare them for the academic year ahead.
Each day this summer from 3 – 4 p.m. resort guests were able to learn about the island, the children and their school while enjoying ice cream treats as they insert pencils, spiral notebooks, glue sticks, rulers and other needed supplies into the backpacks for each child. The guests will also write notes of encouragement to the children. The program is complimentary to guests.
“Giving back to the community is an important standard for Viceroy Anguilla,” stated General Manager Richard Alexander. “We continue to seek ways to support our island and its residents.”
The backpacks were delivered to the school on September 1, 2014 by employees of Viceroy Anguilla.
