Press Release:– The Make It Happen Foundation (MIH) is proud to have partnered with the TOCO Foundation to provide assistance by way of food items to poor and vulnerable persons.
At the handover ceremony of the items to the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) this week, one of Make It Happen’s directors, Mr. Lucius Lake, explained that although Make it Happen is known for supporting police and fire stations island-wide, the Foundation has also stepped up over the years to help renovate three schools, raised funds for the nurses association and assisted the Bordelais Correctional Facility.
The Make it Happen Foundation was founded by Mrs Raquel Du Boulay Chastanet, wife of Prime Minister Hon. Allen M. Chastanet and since its inception, has been devoted to uplifting others and hence the decision to partner with TOCO to help the most needy was unanimous.
“On behalf of Make It Happen, I convey how happy we are to partner with TOCO for this initiative which is one of the outreach programmes that directly benefits the more vulnerable in our society at a time when it is most needed,” noted Lucius Lake.
Representative for the TOCO Foundation Mr. Eustace Vitalis thanked the Make It Happen Foundation, the Rotary Club and Toco Founders Taj and Angela Weekes for their contributions which made the donation of the grocery items possible.
Deputy Director of NEMO, Ms. Maria Medard, explained that the items will be distributed through the District Disaster Committees to the most vulnerable and persons with disabilities within the various communities.
The Make it Happen Foundation commends TOCO for this initiative and looks forward to continuing partnerships that benefit the Saint Lucian community.
