Chukka Belize’s Annual Christmas Initiative 2015: Celebrating with the Children of Belize City
December 4th, 2015 (Belize City, Belize) – So many people have a desire to make a difference for others, and a little goes a long way. With support, encouragement and team work Chukka guides, management and staff of Chukka Belize with the assistance of key partners and suppliers made this 2015 initiative spectacular for over 15 primary schools with the Chukka Christmas Toy Drive initiative.
On December 4th, 2015 a total of 75 infant students ages 5 to 7 years were invited to a very special Christmas luncheon hosted at Chukka Belize’s Corporate office in Belize City. The tradition started over a decade ago by the Guides at Chukka in an effort to give back at a time when giving means a lot more. Thanks to the thoughtful gestures from the guides the initiative has ever since been a proud annual tradition at the company and is growing each year.
How is this achieved? From September of each year, the guides contribute a portion of the tips they receive to the annual initiative. At the end of November, the company and staff matches the contributions raised by the guides and in-kind contributions as well to the initiative.
“Christmas is a very special time of year. Chukka is very happy to be a part of this annual children’s toy program made special this year with the luncheon where our staff volunteered in preparing the lunch themselves”, commented Country Manager, Valerie Woods.
The luncheon featured entertainment provided by DJ Aaron, Fries the Clown from Ozzy & Sons, Santa Clause, lots of food, drinks, sweet treats and of course gifts for every child in attendance.
