Sagicor joined the Ministry of Equity and Social Justice in its 2019 Annual Hamper Drive seeking to bring relief to underprivileged persons.
The items in the hampers were purchased with cash and in-kind donations from the Sagicor team across its offices in St Lucia and donated on Monday 23rd December to the Ministry for distribution.
Sagicor’s Head of Sales Donna Hinkson, shared on the impetus behind the activity. “This is something we did last year and had already started planning for this year, but I received an email from the Ministry to assist them and we felt that this would be a good way to ensure that our contribution went to those most in need. I know I speak on behalf of everyone at Sagicor when I say we are delighted to do this small gesture which will contribute to the families having a Happy Christmas.”
Ms. Tanzia Toussaint, Deputy Director of Social Transformation at the Ministry of Equity, Social Justice, Local Government and Empowerment said the hampers will be distributed before Christmas and will benefit those most in need in the community including children, single parent households, elderly men and women as well as persons living with HIV and disabilities in several communities across the island.
