For the second consecutive year, the GET NICE CREW, a group of Vincentians living predominantly in the United States travelled to St. Vincent and the Grenadines to spread the Christmas cheer to residents of St. Benedict’s Day Nursery in Georgetown, patients at the Paediatric Ward of the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital and the children of Rose Place (Bottom Town), the birth place of more than one of the founders of the group.
The joy and surprise on the faces of each child were truly unforgettable, as Santa and his many elves distributed toys, and bags full of mouth-watering candies and cupcakes. The group enjoyed interacting with the kids, the parents and staff of the three institutions.
“For the members of the GET NICE CREW, this is what Christmas is all about. We see Christmas as an opportunity to share and give back to individuals and institutions. In this regard, the GET NICE CREW wishes to sincerely thank the many individuals who in one way or the other contributed to its 2nd Annual Christmas Toy Drive.
“As a result of your generosity and support, the GET NICE CREW was able to provide 150+ toys for the children. In addition, via this medium, the GET NICE CREW wishes to thank Santa and his many elves and by extension their family members for choosing to assist with the distribution of toys on Christmas Day,” the group said.
The GET NICE CREW said it is already planning for its 3rd Annual Toy Drive in 2016.
“We hope that with continued assistance, we would be able to make this mission bigger and better. On behalf of the GET NICE CREW, we wish the citizens of St. Vincent and the Grenadines a peaceful and productive 2016,” the group said.
