As is customary, Digicel continued to deliver good cheer as part of its social responsibility to St. Lucian residents.
Compelled by the desire to share tangible rewards with as many persons as possible, the Digicel team continued to share not only SMILES but messages of hope. In keeping with the latest promotion, ‘SMILE’, this year’s hamper distribution ensured that the bigger, better network continued to bring smiles to the faces of a number of unsuspecting families around the island.
The Digicel Smile Mobile along with Digicel’s team members took time out to socialize and share with the less fortunate, elderly and disabled around the island. The team visited over 15 families including Castries, Barre St. Joseph, Trois Piton, Balata, Trouya, Entrepot, Gros Islet, Babonneau and Lumbard – Mon Repos.
The hampers were also extended to other organizations including Adelaide Home, Marian Home, St. Lucy’s Home, Transit Home, St. Lucia Crisis Centre, Holistic Health Choices to name a few. Over $40 000.00 worth of food supplies and toiletries were donated to the families to help ease the financial burden for the Christmas Season.
We were happy to bring some cheer and joy to families of these communities in this Christmas season,” said Kerchelle Jn Charles, Marketing Manager, as this is truly a time for giving, sharing and spreading joy, Digicel is pleased to bring smiles to persons in need. The joyful response by the recipients and their expressions of gratitude has humbled us.”
The experience was indeed very memorable and an eye opener for the entire team who, through interaction, understood the plight of some of the St. Lucian populace in the communities where we live and who the company provides care and service to on a daily basis.
