Local Business Donates 1,000 Uniforms to CAPS

Abaco Battery and Tyre

A donation of approximately 1,000 boys and girls uniform shirts were made to Central Abaco Primary School (CAPS) on Sept. 17 by Joetha Jones, along with Michael Jones, operation manager of Abaco Battery and Tyre/ Shell Station in Dundas Town.

Maxwell Jones, owner, was off island when the donation took place.

Mrs. Jones said that they were grateful for the opportunity to present the shirts and blouses to the school because they recognize that it is a difficult time for some parents.  Therefore, they sought to do something different that would be most helpful to parents.

Mrs. Jones said that the company in giving back decided to partner with one of their suppliers – Good Ride Tyres – to purchase the uniform shirts. She added that their objective is to also touch base with the students who they are helping and providing such beneficial items for.

“So we strayed away this year from the backpacks and books and all that, and we decided to do shirts this year.”

The donation was enthusiastically received by Principal Beatrice Moxey because with a student population of 853 registered students, there were students who greatly benefited from the donation.  Moxey shared that they sent uniform shirts to Treasure Cay Primary School as well to assist students there.

Abaco Battery and Tyre has been in operation on Abaco for seven years.
