Deprived kids appreciate toys from Sandals

Jamaica’s Sandals Foundation is delivering over 600 care packages to families and more than 10,000 fun and educational toys to disadvantaged children in the Caribbean this Christmas.

Through its Christmas campaign, We Are Here For You, the Sandals Foundation is bringing cheer to families facing challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic during the festive season. Care packages of groceries, food vouchers, and hot meals are being distributed through funds raised via a social media campaign.

The fundraiser, which was done in November to mark Giving Tuesday, encouraged followers and guests at Sandals and Beaches Resorts to donate US$20 to support the charity’s yuletide efforts.

Through its decade-long partnership with American toy giant, Hasbro, the Sandals Foundation is also delivering toys to thousands of children in Jamaica, St Lucia, Antigua, the Bahamas, the Turks & Caicos Islands, Grenada and Barbados, who would otherwise go without.

“There is no doubt that so many families across the world have endured tremendous challenges this past year, and it has been no different here in the Caribbean,” said Adam Stewart, executive chairman of Sandals Resorts International and president of the Sandals Foundation.”
