Latin American Resort Grand Baymen Collects Over 20 Pounds of School Supplies for Disadvantaged Children
January 03, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsJanuary 3, 2017 - During Grand Baymen's November "Discover Belize" tour and Global Asset Protection Symposium, over 20 pounds of pens, pencils, notebooks, and art supplies were collected from generous visitors to the resort on Ambergris Caye, Belize for the Holy Cross Anglican School.
Holy Cross Anglican School's vision is to provide the highest quality education to some of the most underserved children of San Pedro. They seek to effectively prepare students for the challenges of life in the 21st century by providing a Christ-centered, state of the art educational environment.
A small group from Grand Baymen was able to visit the school to deliver the supplies and had the opportunity to take a tour of the school and learn more about all the services that Holy Cross provides to the children of San Pedro.
"Part of our company's culture is to be socially responsible in our development of communities. We are able to give back to the communities that we work in because of the amazing support we receive from our owners, shareholders, and visitors. Our November school supply drive for Holy Cross Anglican School was one of our most successful - bringing in over 20 pounds of supplies!" said Betsy Rosenlund, Business Development Manager at ECI, the Latin American real estate developer that manages Grand Baymen Resort. "Because of this continued generosity, we are able to further our relationship with Holy Cross School to aid in their mission of providing quality education to some of the most disadvantaged children in San Pedro."
In addition to providing a quality education, Holy Cross tends to the health of its students by providing a nutritious breakfast, snack, lunch, dental care and volunteer doctors. The health, welfare and positive development of each student is Holy Cross's highest priority.
"The staff and children of Holy Cross Anglican School are very grateful for the recent donation of school supplies. Their future educational and health development is truly in the hands of the caring folks of Grand Baymen and ECI. Without their help and support, these disadvantaged children would have little opportunity to receive the education they need to become productive citizens of Belize and the world," said Linda Carter, Office Manager of the Holy Cross Anglican School.
In the future, Grand Baymen and ECI look forward to continuing to serve and improve the educational experience of the children of Holy Cross and San Pedro through the generous donations of their owners, visitors, and shareholders.
