Sterling Asset Management, a leading investment firm, has donated JMD 42,000 each to Clifton Boys’ Home and Maxfield Children’s Home. The donations were raised at Sterling Asset Management’s customer appreciation party in February 2023 at the Pegasus Hotel. Customers participated in games such as Tic Tac Toe, Bocce, Connect Four, and giant Jenga, with each winner donating their winnings to the two charities.
Sterling Asset Management recognises giving back to the community as an integral part of its corporate social responsibility. The company is committed to supporting charitable organisations and causes that positively impact people’s lives, particularly child safety, sportsmanship, crime and education. Through its donation to Clifton Boys’ Home and Maxfield Children’s Home, Sterling Asset Management aims to assist children who need it the most.
“We are pleased to have raised funds at our customer appreciation party for these two worthy causes,” said Michelle Valentine, assistant vice president of marketing and communications of Sterling Asset Management. “Businesses should recognise the importance of giving back to the community, and we are committed to doing our part. We are grateful to our customers for being a part of raising the money and believe that our donation to Clifton Boys’ Home and Maxfield Children’s Home will help make a difference in the lives of these children. We encourage others to support charitable causes in their communities.”
Sterling Asset Management is committed to ongoing support of students who have aged out of Maxfield Children’s Home, such as ward Vanessa Wright who is now attending law school.
So far, for this financial year, they have provided over JMD 600,0000 in tertiary education assistance.
Clifton Boys’ Home and Maxfield Children’s Home are both orphanages that provide residential care for children who have been neglected, abandoned, or abused. The homes offer a safe and nurturing environment for children to grow and develop, with access to education, healthcare, and other essential services.
“We are extremely grateful to Sterling Asset Management for their donation,” said Renae Tuckett Palmer, Maxfield Children’s Home manager. “Their support will help us to gear up for Labour Day activities and provide better care and support for the over 100 children who rely on us. It is heartening to see businesses like Sterling Asset Management recognise the importance of giving back to the community.”
Patrick Newman, manager of Clifton Boys’ Home, also shared his gratitude, “In this harsh economic climate, we recognise that your action to raise funds and of giving back to the Clifton Boys’ Home is an indication of Sterling’s service to mankind and the development of children in state care and for that, we are extremely grateful.”
Newman also pointed out, “The Clifton Boys Home remains a signal of hope for boys whose parents have failed in their responsibilities to them. However, we believe that all our boys have great potential, and contributions such as this will allow us to unearth these hidden potentials. We look forward to Sterling Asset Management’s continued support of the Clifton Boys’ Home as we continue to provide an important service to our country.”
