NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Bahamian-owned company Limeade and The Munroe Foundation, along with Englerston MP Glenys Hanna-Martin, hosted Community Cares at the Montell Heights Community Centre on Mantol Street on Saturday to distribute breakfast and Limeade to residents of the area.
According to a press statement by Limeade, the Englerston community is the third to benefit from the Community Cares initiative that continues at a time when many are still out of work due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Limeade owner Joshua Miller stated, “We realize the impact that we’ve had on the residences in the previous communities and we will continue the initiative with the goal of reaching as many communities as we can. As many people prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving this week, we would like to continue doing our part and spreading joy through helping others. Knowing that you have made a difference in some way to someone is a good feeling.”
At the launch of the initiative, the statement noted, “250 lunches and gallons of Limeade were distributed” and as a result, “several additional partners have agreed to join and continue to join the initiative”.
Miller continued, “Thanks to our partners, on our second initiative, residents in the area were able to come to the community center and 400 plates of food and gallons of Limeade were distributed. Today (Saturday, November 21), we are able to yet again distribute 400 plates of food and limeade beverages.”
He added: “Today would not have been possible without our partners and we are grateful to those that assisted in any way to make it happen. I would like to recognize and say a special thank you to Purity Bakery, Bakertilly, Bahamas P and L Bakery, Chef Lorre, Alfredo Foodie, U Stream Us radio station, Believe Wines, Bahamas Medical and Surgical Supplies, Green Thumb Group, Morning Moves with Bowflex Barbie and Jay Fitness.”
The statement also read: “With community partnerships being one of their main initiatives, The Munroe Foundation continues to play a major role through their generous contributions and their time.”
Its core focus, according to the statement, is to “continue to have a heart for people”; a goal which it states “always has and always will be what the Munroe Foundation stands for”.
