“Just in time” said Jean Hivert, GBCH CEO, when she was given a check from the Facebook Group Freeport Friends, yesterday!
The friends on this page are made up of former teachers, Syntex, Borco and casino staff, etc.. wives and children who all lived in Freeport in the early 60’s and on. During the Hurricane they kept up with events here, and came together to raise over $8k, which was spilt between the GBCH and the Lucaya Presbyterian Church.
Our home is extremely grateful for these funds, which we are in desperate need of to help keep our doors open for the 28 children (10 under school age) at the home.
Sarah Kirkby is seen presenting the donation to Jean Hivert at the home yesterday on behalf of the Facebook pages’ organizer Chris Child.
