 The annual Christmas luncheon is just one of the ways which the Foundation chooses to share with and care for others in the community.  Another venture is serving breakfast every third Saturday of the month in Castries.  

Director of the Foundation, Francis Hyacinth, also addressed the crowd and described how the Foundation sought the assistance of Ms. Lorene Gaymon from the St. Vincent de Paul St. Francis of Assissi Conference Group who selected persons from the community to attend this event.

 Further, he noted that long-standing partner, the Salvation Army, once again teamed up with the Foundation and provided hampers for distribution.  

After a sumptuous meal, the residents gathered were led in the singing of Christmas Carols, followed by the distribution of hampers.  In addition to the hampers donated by the Salvation Army, the Hyacinth Family Foundation provided additional hampers, all of which were distributed among the attendees, who included residents of Laborie town, Banse and Augier.

In closing, Nathan Hyacinth thanked the sponsors for their continued support, as well as the residents for graciously receiving the members of the Hyacinth Family Foundation.
