It’s an annual tradition for Belize Electricity Limited during this time of the year. Employees delivered Christmas hampers to ninety deserving families and sixty senior citizens countrywide. Valued at three hundred dollars each, it contains all the ingredients for a Christmas dinner, as well as other grocery items and toiletries.

“The annual Christmas Hamper Drive initiative which allows us to give back to deserving families throughout the country in communities that we serve. This annual tradition started last week, where we as employees wrapped, packed and personally delivered the hampers to deserving families that we recommended throughout the country. In addition to the donation, employees companywide also recommend names of recipients to receive the hampers.”


The distribution took place between December nineteenth and twentieth. The recipients were all surprised that they were chosen for the Christmas hamper drive programme.
