By BBN Staff: Belize’s leading innovator in telecommunications, SMART, presented a check for $5,000 to the Belize Red Cross.
The Red Cross will use this donation to assist in their relief efforts as Belize recovers from the effects of Hurricane Earl.
In presenting the check on August 22nd, SMART thanked all those who made this a reality by contributing under the Smart Cares Program.
Earlier this month, the company activated the program to facilitate customers who wished to join SMART in extending a helping hand to assist those affected by Hurricane Earl. Customers were afforded the opportunity to text to CARE (2273) and pledge a donation which was then deducted from their credit.
SMART matched all the donations that customers made.
The Belize Red Cross expressed gratitude for the contribution and advised that the funds will be used to assist those affected in the rural areas of the country.
