Ogier volunteers with bags of groceries they packed for Meals on Wheels deliveries

(CNS Local Life): More than 200 seniors received special bags of pantry staples for the Christmas season thanks to a donation from a local law firm. Ogier partnered with Meals on Wheels for the second year running to ensure that the community’s most vulnerable seniors won’t face an empty kitchen over the holidays.

From their kitchens in George Town, Bodden Town, East End and North Side, the Meals on Wheels team have been serving seniors across Grand Cayman since 1997. For 2016, Ogier came on board as a major sponsor of the organisation, providing both financial support and hundreds of hours of volunteer time for meal home deliveries and special events.

Beulah McField of Meals on Wheels said, “The Christmas holiday season can be a particularly difficult and lonely time for our seniors. We reached out to the community seeking support and Ogier answered the call once again.”

In 2015, Ogier provided 100 bags of groceries for the initiative; this year, that number grew to 215.

Ogier partner Rachael Reynolds said, “We’re very pleased to be able to help this excellent initiative again – Meals on Wheels do a tremendous job of helping vulnerable people in our island community, and we’re proud to be a partner for their Christmas project.”

Progressive Distributors, Foster’s Food Fair, Cost U Less and Kirk Market donated reusable bags for the initiative.
