Courts donates over $30,000 worth of Products and Supplies as part of Annual Initiative!
The management and staff of Courts St. Lucia made true on their promise to provide continuous assistance to the needy and deserving around the island in time for the season . . . over 30 families were impacted.
This venture forms part of continuous efforts by the company to implement and execute measures to aid in the fight against poverty in St. Lucia and across the OECS. The latest of such is the reintroduction of the company's Wish-list initiative which was launched in 2010 to assist those persons directly affected by Hurricane Tomas. Since its inception, the Courts Wish-list has assisted over 100 families in St. Lucia by modifying and improving their current living conditions.
An initiative such as the Courts Wish-list came at a time when hundreds of St. Lucians relied heavily on the support of others for essential daily supplies. The level of humanitarianism displayed by the well-wishers as they wrote to Courts, seeking assistance for help on behalf of a family member, a friend or a neighbour for the season was heart-warming. This year, over fifty requests were received, all emotionally charged as they told stories of hardships, obstacles, trials; above all, stories of resilience and perseverance as narratives and phone calls captured the determination of persons who lived with daily challenges and would be heartened by the joy and surprise of receiving a gift for Christmas.
On Sunday December 20th, a Courts team comprising the company's staff and associates made the eagerly anticipated trip to deliver the items to the recipients as well as delivering hampers to the orphanages and elderly homes in St. Lucia. The crew covered various communities around the island heading first to Monchy in the north and reaching as far as Bruceville in Vieux Fort. The “joy of giving” was indeed evident throughout that trip as recipients allowed their gratitude to be manifested in different ways full of joy and thanksgiving to the person who made the request on their behalf to Courts.
Courts St. Lucia would like to officially thank the well-wishers who wrote to us on behalf of someone in need; your selflessness has not gone unnoticed. We thank you for making this initiative a resounding success.
Courts would like to wish everyone the very best for the new year.
The Courts Wish-list team brought smiles to the faces of many for
