For a second consecutive year, team BTC traded their desks at the call centers and seats in their fiber trucks for the elves workshop
and sleigh duty, becoming Secret Santas to over forty children at the Bilney Lane Children’s Home and the Nazareth Home for Children. The children mailed their Christmas lists to BTC whose team members eagerly took on the duty of helping Santa purchase and deliver gifts to each child.
BTC Senior Manager for Communications, Indira Collie said, “Team BTC has stepped up yet again. Our team members, like many in the country have been helping family members, friends and the community directly affected by the pandemic since early last year. However, our colleagues still wanted to spread some cheer to our most vulnerable in our community, our children. We are truly grateful to them for demonstrating this level of leadership and sense of community which is a demonstration of how we live one of our philosophies- ‘heart is more than something we have, it’s something we share’.”
Children from age two to eighteen wished for a variety of toys and gifts including dolls, bicycles, legos, cars, clothing and smart electronics. BTC’s team members were able to peruse the list and choose a child’s wish to make it a reality. Ms. Elizabeth Mackey, caretaker at Bilney Lane Children’s Home said, “On behalf of our thirty-four children, we would like to extend our heartfelt thank you to BTC for your support.
These presents added to the fun and excitement of the holiday season and the children were indeed appreciative.” Charlis Johnson from the Nazareth Children’s Home also thanked BTC and said, “The pandemic has made it really difficult for us and there is a ban on visitation. The kids definitely felt appreciated and we thank BTC for remembering them.”
