Royalton White Sands supports Blossom Gardens Child Care Facility
CHILDREN AT the Blossom Gardens Child Care Facility in Montego Bay on Wednesday, September 14, felt the warmth of members of staff of the Royalton White Sands Resort in Trelawny through the donation of toys and other items.
The resort delivered several toys to the children and also provided them with refreshments in what turned out to be an emotional visit to the facility.
Human resources director at Royalton White Sands, Angeline Anderson, said the visit and donation formed a part of the resort’s community relations programme and ensured that staff members were given an opportunity to visit and spend quality time with the children and members of staff.
“The facility is very clean. The kids were adorable, which resulted in some of us becoming attached to them, and leaving the home was an emotional experience. We just could not pull ourselves away from these children, who are so warm, beautiful, and adorable,” stated Anderson.
The hotel’s human resources director said the hotel plans to continue to give to the home regularly. “We are on a mission to spread the resources which the resort has been blessed with – through the kind donation of our team members, the corporate offices and, very importantly, our guests. We are determined to make a difference – not only in the parish of Trelawny, but where we think these resources are needed,” she said.
Community relations manager Debbie Bailey, who was part of the visiting team, described it as an experience of a lifetime to finally be able to participate in an activity at the home, which is well known throughout Jamaica.
She said: “I have on many occasions read about, and heard of, Blossom Gardens Child Care Facility and being there gave me a new thinking of the tremendous work that the caregivers are delivering to the children. Participating in the feeding session took me down a road which I will always treasure.”
As part of its community relations programme, Royalton White Sands continues to seek out new avenues in which it can support communities and the people who serve the company.
