PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – NV GEBE announced in a press release today that food boxes have been distributed to several families within the community on behalf of the Management and Staff of the company. In early December the Management along with the employees of NV GEBE joined in the Art of Giving Challenge where employees would donate one item per day for twenty four days. The food boxes were initially scheduled to be distributed on Christmas Day, however the team decided that due to food items still being placed in the boxes what better way to start the New Year than gifting to others. The Food Boxes were placed in different locations of the company and were collected and replaced once the boxes were filled.
For the sake of transparency NV GEBE posted a notice on its Facebook page requesting the community’s assistance by sending innames of persons or institutions who are in need. Those names along with names sent in via email were all gifted a box.
Dr. Sharine Daniel, Interim Manager of NV GEBE stated that this could not happen without the staff and that she is extremely grateful for their selfless and generous donation to assist in helping and supporting families of the community in these uncertain times. We know that due to COVID19 pandemic many families have experienced challenges and with these challenging times it is important that as a people we support each other.
