In a handover ceremony at their Sales and Distribution Centre in Cul de Sac, Peter and Company Distribution presented relief packages to Mrs. Doreen Gustave, Director of NEMO of St. Lucia for relief shipments destined to St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the wake of the eruption of the La Soufriere volcano.
Delivering a brief statement surrounded by socially distanced employees representing each department of PCD and the relief packages, Ms. Michele Kalloo, CEO of PCD stated that it was indeed a momentous occasion because every single relief package thoughtfully prepared for handover to NEMO was funded 100% by employees of Peter and Company Distribution.
More than fifty (50) employees dipped into their own pockets in uncertain times to help purchase the products in these packages without any corporate assistance.
Mrs. Doreen Gustave, Director of NEMO joined Ms. Kalloo in saluting the collective spirit of compassion and generosity of the PCD Team for going above and beyond to lend a hand and send some love to our neighbours to provide some measure of comfort during this time.
Ms. Kalloo further commended the team for continuing to live PCD’s guiding principle of “People Caring and Doing for each other” and now going even further, extending it beyond our borders. Each relief package contained non-perishable food items, vitamins, OTC medication, baby formula, diapers and other personal care and hygiene products
