Banasa delivers gifts to 2,200 children in rural communities to celebrate Christmas.
Guatemala, December 2013. “To continue with the legacy left by the founder of the company that of bringing happiness to children from nearby communities, the company carried on the tradition of distributing toys to boys and girls of 12 communities in Escuintla, Retalhuleu, San Marcos and Quetzaltenango”, stated Bernardo Roehrs, Corporate Director.
Employees’ children from Banasa and children from nearby communities received 2,200 presents. Among the communities benefited were: Chiquirines, Los Encuentros, El Pomal, El Troje, Las Morenas, Barillas, Carrizales and Colonia Díaz.
Through the year these communities are supported by the company’s Social Responsibility Program contributing towards their development.
The Social Responsibility Coordinator addressed some words to mothers that came to pick up the gifts: “As in previous years, Banasa, worries that employees’ children receive a gift on behalf of the Company and today we deliver these presents, wishing all a Merry Christmas and many blessings for 2014”.
A Banasa?s employee remembers that one time, when the company was going through difficult times, the founder did not give presents to his children instead he gave presents to his employees’ children.
Mothers expressed their thanks and happiness to Banasa for the gifts received and also for the care of the communities.
