Sagicor Life Mandeville Donates To Less Fortunate
Financial advisors and administrative team members of the Sagicor Life Jamaica Mandeville branch took to their respective communities recently with packages of food items, toiletry and masks for distribution to vulnerable and needy residents.
Some 45 team members delivered packages to the elderly and others who are facing financial constraints, worsened by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in communities in Manchester, St. Catherine, St. Elizabeth and Clarendon.
Dale Greaves Smith, Senior Branch Manager, Sagicor Life, Mandeville said the team was moved to contribute as they took note of the growing need in their communities and the increasing negative impacts of the coronavirus on the economy, resulting in job losses, and the inability of persons to provide for basic needs.
“We are a team that takes very seriously our company’s mantra which speaks to serving the communities in which we operate, and this is one of the ways we saw where we could give service. This is a very difficult time for many persons and it’s important that we lead by example in doing what we can to help,” she said.
The Branch Manager also joined the team in delivering food packages, by identifying her own beneficiary, 82-year-old Charles Frater in New Green, Mandeville. She used the opportunity to encourage the elderly man to stay safe and practice the safety protocols by the Government, by staying at home where possible.
Frater expressed thanks to the Sagicor team for the visit and the donation.
