Sterling Asset Management Limited is trying to bring Christmas joy to needy children.

Vice-president of sales and marketing, Kevin Richards, explained that the company is having a food and clothes drive, that came out of the staff's desire to do year-round activities with the wards at Maxfield Park Children's Home.

"We encouraged staff members and clients to donate non-perishable food items, new or gently worn clothing and toiletries," he said. "This is the first year we are having it, and we hope to make it a part of our annual calendar of charitable giving."

Though this is the inaugural year, Sterling has been a long-standing supporter of the home through many educational-assistance programmes. Richards noted that some persons have even donated cash, which Sterling will use to purchase items for the home.

Moving its operations

"Persons can drop by our new office on the third floor, 40 Knutsford Boulevard to make donations or contact us at 754-2225-7 to make arrangements for collections of items to be donated," Richards said.

Sterling is moving its operations from Barbados Avenue, and Richards noted the new office would be open for business tomorrow.

Sterling is hoping to collect all donations by noon on Friday. The drive is particularly for the Maxfield Park Children's Home, as Sterling has been a long-time supporter of the home.

"In the future, we hope to expand this to other homes if possible," he said. During the festive season, Sterling has made small donations in supporting a number of community groups who have hosted treats for children in the past.

"But we have a special gift donation to be made to the Maxfield Park Children's Home, in addition to the items procured in the drive," Richards said.
