The Grand Baymen team is fortunate to be able to donate its time and resources in efforts to give back to the surrounding community. Once a month we choose an organization that dedicates itself to the betterment of San Pedro.
Our contributions include school supply drives to Holy Cross School, a local elementary school dedicated to the health, welfare, and positive development of children. Supplies collected include pens, pencils, colored pencils, crayons, chalk, Post-it notes, paper clips, stickers, highlighters, calculators, coloring and activity books, binders, folders, notebooks, index cards, rulers and book covers.
We encourage participants of our Discover Belize Tours and Belize visitors to bring school supplies to help out this cause.
In the past we’ve also donated to the non-profit animal shelter, SAGA, as shelter that houses homeless animals on the island. SAGA provides health care for the animals and help them find a place to live. We supplied them with a security camera in order to watch over the animals they work to protect.
After Hurricane Earl, we assisted in a silent auction to assist with the damages. The hurricane brought destruction to 3000 houses in Belize, destroyed numerous crops, and ripped apart almost 90% of the docks on the island.
We hope to continue this philanthropic work in order to strengthen the community. Building a strong sense of community can make the quality of life better for everyone.
