Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) has continued its annual commitment to community service by bringing Christmas cheer to the Beacon School.
The company recently, Wednesday, December 5, held a Christmas party for students at the Beacon School’s campus.
Leteasha Lord, BTC Marketing and Public Relations Northern Bahamas spoke to this daily about the initiative. She stated that this party has been occurring every year for the past five years.
“BTC is always excited to come to the Beacon School,” she said.
Students were treated to games, bouncing castles, pizza, popcorn and lively music and more for the day. Characters like Santa Claus and Mini Mouse also paraded around the campus during the party.
“It is always an awesome time. The kids are always happy to see us. They know us by name,” she said.
She furthered that BTC wants to do more than make sales, by offering specials to encourage potential customers to purchase phones, and spreading positivity throughout the community.
“We want you to know that we are giving back as well. So, every time you purchase a phone from BTC just know that your dollar is going to help a child in need or to feed a person who is sick or shut in,” she said.
Lord also revealed that it is not only a part of their yearly commitment to the school, but also a component of BTC and their partners’ Mission Day 2018 which takes place all across the region every year.
Principal of the Beacon School, Titi Mackenzie-Moss thanked BTC for the continued partnership and took the opportunity to appeal to anyone who wished to support the school to do so.
She also invited members of the public to visit the school’s sheltered workshop where students perform various handicrafts and skills, opened on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9. a.m. to 3. p.m.
