Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands (November, 11 2014 / Fortis TCI Press Release) – The Salvation Army recently received a helpful donation in the form of a pickup truck donated to them by FortisTCI. The truck, once a part of the FortisTCI fleet, will aid the Salvation Army in taking care of their day-to-day tasks which typically involves moving large amounts of donated goods.
FortisTCI Vice President of Transmission and Distribution Devon Cox and Vice President of Customer & Corporate Services Allan Robinson made the hand-off. Mr. Cox commented on the donation adding, “We enjoy giving back to the community and embrace the work of organizations such as the Salvation Army. We know that they will take this donation and do even more amazing work throughout the islands.”
The gold 2009 Ford F-150 was turned over in excellent used condition to Captain Derick Miller. He plans to use the truck for transporting goods, emergency items and food, as well as picking up donations and transporting Salvation Army workers and volunteers to various events. Speaking about the donation, Capt. Miller said, “It’s through donations like these that the Salvation Army can continue to do the work it does in aiding the community. We appreciate the assistance that FortisTCI has given us, and we’re glad to have their partnership in this regard.”
As a part of the Company’s mission, FortisTCI believes in being a good corporate citizen. FortisTCI, therefore, looks forward to making meaningful contributions that have a positive impact on the community.
