IGY Marinas to Launch its 2nd Annual Philanthropic Initiative in Saint Lucia
IGY Marinas announced earlier this week that it will be hosting its second annual philanthropic initiative, Inspire Giving through You, on February 25, 2017. The first of two global community outreach events for the New Year, Inspire Giving through You will once again call upon the hands of IGY Marinas’ corporate staff, marina associates, Anchor Club Strategic Partners, yacht owners, captains and crew members to take part in supporting the local communities where the company operates.
“IGY Marinas is excited to once again team up with members in our network and beyond for a day of giving, inspiring, and having fun,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas. “We received such tremendous support during our first Inspire Giving through You projects in 2016, welcoming hundreds of volunteers in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean. Our mission for 2017 is to inspire even more members in the industry to join us in giving back to the destinations where we live, work, and travel.”
For IGY Saint Lucia, the philanthropic initiative will focus on New Beginnings Transit Home. This centre caters to children who are victims of severe child abuse and neglect, accommodating up to twenty-two children. The Home also includes a Therapeutic Centre intended to provide psychotherapy treatment. Rodney Bay Marina and its group of volunteers will focus on improving the aesthetics of the facility, with plans to construct a gazebo and enhance the surrounding landscape.
