CAY BAY:—During the planning stages for the annual SXM DOET volunteer initiative, Sherwin-Williams made it known to the Project Management Team that they were interested in adopting a public school as part of their corporate social responsibility initiatives.
The paint company chose to adopt the Leonald Conner School in Cay Bay and work with volunteers to help provide the school with a refreshed look, which was especially needed following the damage caused by last year’s hurricane season. On March 9th and 10th, volunteers, employees of local businesses and Sherwin-Williams staff came out to help re-paint the public school.
“We are so happy that we were able to provide the entire school with a fresh coat of paint. We hope that the spirits of the staff and pupils at the school have also been refreshed. It is important to feel good and be proud of the space that you spend the majority of time in during the day. Feeling great definitely makes it easier to achieve this and we hope that all the students at Leonald Conner School will have an easier time doing their best in their renewed space,” said assistant manager Shasa Lake of Sherwin-Williams.
The management, staff and students of the Leonald Conner School are elated with their beautification and thanks to all volunteers that signed up to their project and Sherwin-Williams for donating the paint and expertise. “this kind gesture has allowed us to be able to work in a nicer and cleaner environment. We are extremely happy with our new facelift,” said the school.
Sherwin-Williams is one of SXM DOET’s newest partners, who also offered 30% off on paint to all of this year’s participants.
