In the spirit of giving and supporting the work of the Sandals Foundation, local business Argos Cement recently donated a cheque of US $1500.00 to Public Relations Manager at Sandals Grande Antigua Leon Norville as a goodwill gesture to support the work of the Foundation.
Office Manager at Argos Cement Ranussa Trim said, “We realize the work the Sandals Foundation does and the impact the organization has been making in the community. As a local corporate entity, we wanted to play our part in making sure the work the Foundation does continue, and we are happy to support them.”
Norville who functions as Project Manager of the Foundation said, “We are pleased when businesses see the work we do and are inspired to be part of our initiatives. For us here at the Foundation we are committed to creating change and inspiring hope in our communities and we are appreciative when businesses get involved and play a part in helping us to do so. We are looking forward to continued work with Argos.”
Also on hand for the donation was Financial Controller at Sandals Aqualia Alexander who said, “It speaks volumes because of the work the Sandals Foundation has done throughout the island and the confidence that our local suppliers have in what it is the Sandals Foundation represent. We are very thankful that Argos Cement has come on board to ensure that we are able to continually execute our projects and programs locally.”
The Sandals Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was created to continue and to expand upon the philanthropic work that Sandals Resorts International has undertaken. It is the culmination of close to four decades of dedication to playing a meaningful role in the lives of the communities where we operate across the Caribbean. The Sandals Foundation funds projects in three core areas: education, community and the environment. One hundred percent of the monies contributed by the general public to the Sandals Foundation go directly to programs benefiting the Caribbean community.
