THURSDAY DECEMBER 22, 2022: PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO- This Christmas, Digicel Foundation is investing in activities that empower staff and media personnel to find innovative ways to give back, spreading Christmas cheer in their communities throughout the season. Through the #CommunityEveryting project, five Digicel team members received TT$10,000 to host a Christmas treat for their communities.
Evlyn Carrington, Experience Store Associate in Tobago, used her funds to throw a festive Children’s Christmas party at the Buccoo Community Centre. The Christmas party included a bouncy castle, face painting, a punch board, and other novelty games for the 70 children in attendance, plus each child received a Christmas gift from Santa. Carrington leaned on family, friends and co-workers to help her pull off the wonderful fun-filled event. She also had assistance from sponsors Dosfit Studio, C.H.C. Audio and Acra Rentals.
Carrington shared that “Having a children’s Christmas party was something on my wish list, and thanks to the funding from the Foundation I was able to pull it off. It was about creating the best atmosphere for the children to have fun and feel spoiled.”
The festive occasion brought joy to the families of Digicel Experience Store staff and the whole community of Buccoo, Tobago.
