Viya Provides Free Equipment And Cable TV To Seniors At Herbert Grigg

News / Virgin Islands / April 2, 2019

A partnership between the Government of the Virgin Island and Viya sees the company providing free equipment and cable TV service to seniors at the Herbert Grigg Home for the Aged, Government House announced Tuesday. Twenty-five 40-inch TVs were also provided to the seniors.

Mr. Bryan, according to Government House, lauded the partnership. He thanked VIYA, the Department of Human Services and the staff of Herbert Grigg for their efforts toward the collaboration before participating in a ceremonial ribbon-cutting at one of the rooms outfitted with a new television and cable equipment.

Mr. Bryan also highlighted the importance of public-private partnerships and community involvement in improving the quality of life for residents of Herbert Grigg.

“It takes a community to come together to take care of our seniors. It’s an offering of warm comfort by  a friend, having these means of communications,” he said. “I remember going door-to-door in the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria and seeing so many of our seniors with their radios and seeing how much they rely on radio and television for important information. Thank you to VIYA, the Department of Human Services, and all the partners in the community who came together to make this happen.”
