Ocwen Financial Corp. Donates Gift Certificates to Lutheran Social Services
FREDERIKSTED — Ocwen Financial Corporation donated gift certificates worth $7,700 to benefit low-income families in the Early Head Start program and front line workers at Lutheran Social Services of the Virgin Islands on Wednesday.
“The very generous gesture highlights the selfless dedication and heroic work of LSSVI staff, who care for hundreds of individuals across LSSVI’s programs,” Lutheran Social Services said in a prepared statement.
Frontline workers on St. Croix and each of the families in LSSVI’s Early Head Start program will receive a gift certificate to help defray the impact of COVID-19 on their families, which have all been affected by unexpected expenses caused by the global pandemic.
Ocwen Financial Corporation has been a great supporter of LSSVI programs over the past six years, and has adopted the children and staff at Queen Louise Home for Children in particular.
They have completed several service projects at Queen Louise Home for Children through their volunteer program, Ocwen in the Community. On their most recent visit, twenty-four volunteers, many of whom travelled from all across the US mainland, spent an entire day painting and beautifying the cottages at Queen Louise Home.
They replaced aging appliances and furniture, made all the children’s beds with new sheets, spruced up the auditorium and created an inventory of the programs in-kind donations.
Junia John-Straker, Chief Executive Officer of LSSVI, expressed her gratitude to the entire Ocwen staff for their “continued commitment towards the community and especially the children and vulnerable families our program serves“.
