BTC GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
As a part of its ongoing community service and in honor of Mother’s Day, BTC’s iVolunteer team executed a community initiative to provide assistance to residents still impacted by the global pandemic. The team packaged and provided grocery to over eight hundred families as a showing of heart and love to our community.
CEO for BTC, Andre Foster commented, “We believe that heart is more than something we have, it’s something we share. We wanted to honor mothers in the community by doing something special for them and thought that with so many families still impacted by the pandemic, this gesture would be welcomed. During the entire week leading up to the event, our team volunteered their time to package grocery items and prepare for this event. We are cognizant that this need extends across The Bahamas and already have a number of similar initiatives planned. We will host a community event in Grand Bahama in June, and we are collaborating with our community partners throughout the Family Islands. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve continued to give back, whether through community organizations or through a variety of promotions and incentives.”
To ensure that the company continues to comply with COVID-19 protocols this was a drive-through event where residents were asked to have their trunks open as they drove up and a box of groceries was placed in. In true BTC style, there were giveaways and some lucky winners received a winning ‘golden ticket’ for a free Samsung device and mobile phone cards to families in need.
Throughout the pandemic, BTC has given its support to a number of organizations in New Providence and the Family Islands. Each month, the company provides financial support to Great Commission Ministries’ daily feeding program, and on a quarterly basis, they also distribute groceries to persons in need through Great Commission. In December, BTC’s own team members purchased Christmas gifts for children from the Nazareth Center and Bilney Lane children’s home, and the team also recently purchased tablets for students in need at H.O. Nash Junior High School.
