Digicel distributes over 1,500 toys to children
On Saturday, December 9, the Digicel Caravan took to the streets with members of staff, Santa and his helpers, distributing over 700 gifts to children from Kingstown to Georgetown.
The Caravan made major stops in Calliaqua, Stubbs, Biabou, Byera, Colonarie and Georgetown, allowing the overjoyed children to meet, mingle and take pics with Santa, while he presented them with gifts.
The gift distribution continued on Saturday, December 16, on the Leeward side of the country, and saw the Digicel Caravan journeying as far as Barrouallie, with stops for giveaways in Questelles, Pembroke, Buccament, Layou and Barrouallie.
Additionally, over 140 gifts were distributed during the week of December 11 to the School for Children with Special Needs Georgetown, Kingstown and Bequia, as part of the institutionsâ Christmas celebrations.
Digicelâs marketing executive Jamisha Wright said while Christmas is viewed as a period for heightened commercial activity, it is also a very important time for Digicel to give back, particularly to the needy and less fortunate among us. Wright added that seeing so many smiles on the faces of the kids as they received their gifts was most rewarding.
