GTT staff distributing gifts to residents of the Palms

EMPLOYEES of Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company last week donated more than $1M in care items to the residents of the Palms geriatric facility, located on Upper Brickdam, Georgetown. Almetra Reis, Customer Service Representative who spoke on behalf of the GTT employees at the presentation held at the Palms Institute, said the idea was to recognise the residents for their service to Guyana over the years. “We challenged ourselves to Do More and we

came up with this Shoe Box Challenge to give back … because we care and we will do more for you — the elderly, the young and everyone in Guyana,” she said, according to a GTT release.
The Shoe Box Challenge challenged employees to package shoe boxes with care items suitable for residents of the Palms. The institution was identified because its proximity to GTT and also because the staff felt that often, the elderly are forgotten in benevolent activities.
The response was very heartening. Employees, including Engineers, Technicians, Customer Care Representatives, Clerks, Managers and the Executive Management participated in the shoe box challenge. Employees had approximately three weeks in which to complete the challenge. The staffers were very excited and compassionate as they showed up in their numbers to assist in distributing the gifts to the residents.
