By Chrisbert Garcia: A press release from Tropic Air issued earlier today, served to announce a $500 donation to Dangriga’s Red Cross branch as the start of the company’s ‘Tropic Gives Back’ charity campaign.
The cheque was presented to the Red Cross on Thursday February 4, made possible through efforts from Tropic’s business partners, staff and customers, who contributed by purchasing flight tickets, of which a dollar was put toward the fund.
Each month a different station will be chosen where tickets purchased will help to put money aside for a charitable institution in that municipality, with Caye Caulker having been selected for the month of February and Belmopan for the month of March.
Tropic Air’s President, John Greif lll, stated that the company’s staff and customers work together to raise funds for a variety of charities to make lasting impacts and encouraged all customers to join in giving to causes they’re passionate about.
Steve Schulte, Tropic’s Chief Executive Officer, thanked the company’s employees for giving their time to volunteer around the country and also extended his gratitude to the customers for their wonderful response to this program, making the donation possible.
