Louise Vic­tor, Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Ex­ec­u­tive at Dig­i­cel, com­mented on Dig­i­cel’s com­mit­ment to this ini­tia­tive: “Dig­i­cel is al­ways happy to give back to per­sons in our com­mu­ni­ties. There is some­thing spe­cial about shar­ing with those who have sup­ported us and stayed by our side through­out the years. Giv­ing and shar­ing is part of who we are and what we do at Dig­i­cel; it is em­bed­ded in our very DNA. Whether it is through our var­i­ous ‘feed the need’ ini­tia­tives, spe­cial needs pro­grammes, the host­ing of Christ­mas par­ties or the dis­tri­bu­tion of toys to chil­dren in the com­mu­ni­ties, Dig­i­cel is com­mit­ted and will re­main com­mit­ted to fos­ter­ing the true spirit of Christ­mas and im­prov­ing the lives of per­sons in Saint Lu­cia.”

This Christ­mas sea­son Dig­i­cel has im­pacted many lives and, as a re­sult, cre­ated un­for­get­table mem­o­ries for fam­i­lies.

Ms. Vic­tor added, “At Dig­i­cel we recog­nise that our cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity doesn’t be­gin and end at Christ­mas time; there­fore we re­main res­o­lute in main­tain­ing our year-round com­mit­ments and so­cial pro­grammes, en­sur­ing that the peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia en­joy a bet­ter qual­ity of life.”

Dig­i­cel’s so­cial drive also in­cluded the host­ing of, and col­lab­o­ra­tion on, sev­eral kids’ Christ­mas par­ties and toy drives in­clud­ing the Boys’ Train­ing Cen­tre, The Wave Toy and Food Drive and Blazin FM’s Christ­mas Toy Drive.
