Pink Gin Beach, St. George- 19th December 2017- Hundreds of schoolchildren in Grenada got a special treat from the Sandals Foundation this year, when the company partnered with Hasbro Inc. one of the worlds’ leading play and entertainment companies, for its annual Holiday Toy Drive.

Hasbro Inc. provided Twister, Bop It, Connect 4, My Little Pony Play Sets, Star Wars Action Figures, Spider Man Action Figures, Disney Dolls and many other fun games and toys for the children of the Bonaire Government School, Woburn Infant School and Blessed Sacrament R.C. School in Grand Anse.

Terry Francis, Principal of the Bonaire Government School remarked, ‘What a kind gesture this was from Sandals Foundation! We extend our sincerest gratitude to them for selecting our school.’

General Manager for Sandals LaSource, Peter Fraser commented, ‘We love giving back and this is one initiative that our team members really look forward to every year. We wish we had gifts for every single child on the island but this year we decided to reach out to two schools near the resort and one in the parish of St. Mark. The build up was a whirlwind, with everyone from various departments lending a hand to wrap the presents. The unity displayed among the team to make this happen was priceless.’

The Sandals Foundation Toy Drive is an annual activity by the philanthropic arm of the world’s leading luxury-included resort, as part of its mandate to give back to the communities in which it operates. Over the past years, the Sandals Foundation has distributed thousands of gifts to schoolchildren not only in Grenada, but throughout the region including islands without Sandals Resorts namely Haiti and Dominica.

Sandals Foundation encourages everyone to get involved in giving and share at #Sharethecheer how they are helping to spread happiness this Holiday Season.
