On Feb. 18, the Royal Bahamas Defence Force Rangers received a $1,000 cheque to assist in acquiring a bus to better accommodate the students involved in the program.
The cheque was presented by Iris Henchell, CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank Manager, who met with Rangers Travar Blanc, Kavantia Reckley and Melonie Pierre along with Able Seaman Marco King and Marine Seaman Deoroop Louis.
Henchell explained that the bank received a letter from the Rangers requesting assistance during their Bus Drive to raise funds.
“We wanted to contribute to their Bus Drive to assist with them getting a bus,” she expressed. “They are doing such a great job in the community, and we are proud of them.”
Able Seaman King thanked Henchell for the donation, and made an offer for her to call on the Rangers whenever they are needed.
