Providenciales, 23 Dec 2014 – In its second consecutive year Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort Villages and Spa has invited all its team members to participate once again in our, “Share your Christmas” ( SYC) canned and non-perishable food drive. Celebrating the holiday season, the initiative has a host of activities centered on the spirit of giving and stewardship towards the community and the less fortunate.
Along with a number of community outreach programs and environmental clean-up initiatives; Beaches Turks and Caicos has also launched its “Share your Christmas” Food Drive from December 10th – 24th 2014 to collect food items that will be donated directly to two (2) pantries that serve the less fortunate of the Turks and Caicos: The National HIV Prevention Unit and The Turks and Caicos Social Welfare Office.
The HIV prevention unit assists directly with providing medical support services to those infected with the virus. The group also provides healthy meals daily to about 35-40 persons on the island of Providenciales who would not have the means to otherwise feed themselves. The TCI Social Welfare Office assist with providing financial support to the unemployed and under employed in the Turks and Caicos Islands. They directly impact single mothers, children, the disabled and the elderly by providing them with monetary support and where possible, food and clothing in some cases.
It is our hope that we will be able to collect enough canned goods and non-perishable items not only to assist both organizations with their continued efforts to ensure that all persons enrolled in one or more of these social programs has a healthy meal this holiday season but to also send a charge to other corporate citizens in the community to mobilize and assist in this effort! We also thank the IGA Supermarket Chain for partnering with us for a second year for their kind donation of two gift cards that will be given directly to Social Welfare and the National Aids Programs for the purchase of additional goods for the cause.
A photo challenge capturing team member donations to the “Share Your Christmas Bins” made the initiative extra fun for all of our team members that graciously participated in this years’ SYC food drive. The food bins were situated at the security gates in the back of house, at the Caribbean and Key West Villages . We thank you for being our partners as we work together in eradicating poverty and HIV/AIDS throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Let’s all get involved and share a little this holiday season.
