The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

In keep­ing with main­tain­ing the spirit of ‘Gift­ing’ this Christ­mas, Dig­i­cel con­tin­ues to ex­tend its cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity port­fo­lio with in­creased ac­tiv­ity dur­ing the sea­son of giv­ing. The com­mu­ni­ties of Rosseau, Ca­naries and Den­nery ear­lier this week, were the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of Dig­i­cel’s an­nual ‘Feed the Need Drive’ pro­vid­ing meals to the un­der­priv­i­leged, home­less, sick and shut in and less for­tu­nate res­i­dents. Through col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Ca­naries, Anse-La Raye and Den­nery South Vil­lage coun­cils, Dig­i­cel was able to di­rectly in­ter­act and share the gift of a hearty meal with the most vul­ner­a­ble of the com­mu­ni­ties. Sin­gle par­ent fam­i­lies, dis­abled per­sons, men­tally chal­lenged and other so­cio-eco­nom­i­cally chal­lenged in­di­vid­u­als all ben­e­fited from this ven­ture. Team Dig­i­cel, com­pris­ing of staff and vol­un­teers headed across to the com­mu­ni­ties of Rosseau and Ca­naries re­spec­tively on Thurs­day De­cem­ber 8th and Den­nery vil­lage on Fri­day De­cem­ber 9th, from 9 am ready to serve the res­i­dents. The Christ­mas break­fast in­cluded spreads with hot and cold bev­er­ages, fresh fruit, ham, ba­con, eggs, salad, sausages, bakes, and many other break­fast del­i­ca­cies. Res­i­dents ex­pressed deep grat­i­tude and hap­pi­ness with the smiles and com­ments of ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the “Feed the Need” Team. This mo­ment was re­ward­ing for all team mem­bers as it al­lowed for a spe­cial con­nec­tion to the com­mu­nity and also al­lowed them to boldly live the spirit of shar­ing and giv­ing. The Team showed a great deal of con­tent­ment in be­ing able to as­sist the res­i­dents as this marked a per­sonal con­tri­bu­tion to serv­ing the com­mu­ni­ties and bright­en­ing the lives of the less for­tu­nate peo­ple in St Lu­cia. “Giv­ing back to our cus­tomers, com­min­utes and by ex­ten­sion St Lu­cia. Dig­i­cel re­mains com­mit­ted to en­hanc­ing St Lu­cian’s lives through­out our var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties and there is no bet­ter time to do so, than at Christ­mas, with the spirit of giv­ing all around us. The ex­pres­sions of ap­pre­ci­a­tion by re­cip­i­ents of this gift of a hearty meal through Dig­i­cel’s ‘Feed the Need Drive’ truly tell a story, one of deep grat­i­tude and sin­cere thank­ful­ness for the con­sid­er­a­tion kind­ness ex­tended to them. Dig­i­cel Teams will con­tinue to visit the com­mu­ni­ties, to help brighten lives of more St. Lu­cians and de­liver Christ­mas ham­pers to bring joy and good­will to fam­i­lies across the is­land.

In the spirit of giv­ing, Dig­i­cel strives to con­tinue their ef­forts in en­rich­ing com­mu­ni­ties across Saint Lu­cia.
