BVI Services, a day program for adults with disabilities, is the recipient of several items donated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The local branch president of the church, Andrew Pollard, made the presentation of two sewing machines, a laminator, a desktop computer and one printer/copier on July 13.

Supervisor of Disability Services within the Social Development Department Lorna Dawson thanked Pollard for the church’s generosity and its commitment to follow through on its promise especially after the hurricanes.

The LDS Charities made a commitment back in June 2017 to provide requested resources to the program as part of its humanitarian efforts.

The need for new resources became more apparent after the extensive damage and loss caused by hurricanes Irma and Maria.
