Employees launch donations drive as Flow observes annual ‘Mission Week’

As part of the second annual Liberty Latin America Mission Week 2021 volunteer initiative, the employees of Flow Antigua and Barbuda will present food and care packages to local charity groups.

The effort is to provide relief to families in the community that have been adversely affected by the economic fallout of the pandemic.

According to a release, Mission Week — which started on November 15 and concludes on November 19 — is an annual volunteer initiative which encourages Flow employees to contribute their time, energy, and resources to positively impact the communities that they serve.

Additionally, Flow, under the umbrella of the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation (CWCF), will donate 75 tablets to schools across Antigua and Barbuda so that students can have greater access to the digital world, and to assist in furthering their education.

C&W Communications, the operator of the Flow brands in the Caribbean, set up the Foundation to support charitable and community causes in the company’s markets. 

“Our employees are passionate, engaged, and committed to making meaningful and lasting contributions in the communities in which they live and work. We are constantly searching out meaningful ways in which we can contribute to people’s lives and this year’s initiative does just that,” Country Manager, Flow Antigua and Barbuda, Joe Mathieson said.

“For Mission Week 2021, we hope to use our resources to help those who are in need. Right now, there are many people within our community who are struggling due to the impacts of Covid-19, so we are encouraging all our team members to contribute and volunteer their time, and resources to our donation drive.”

Flow’s Donation Drive runs from November 2 to 18 and the contributions will be distributed to those in need through small groups to include the Helping Hands Girls Club. The groups have identified persons from all walks of life including babies, toddlers, homeless persons, and single mothers who will benefit from this drive.

This year, Flow Antigua and Barbuda will again recreate the enormously successful “Grow it and give it; care it and share it” initiative through its community garden. This initiative has longevity beyond Mission Week as the staff will donate all the produce organically grown in its community garden to charity programmes, such as the Soup Kitchen in St John’s which feeds the homeless.

Last year, total volunteering activities companywide took place in 28 countries, with over 1,000 employees providing 3,100 volunteer hours in 40 in-person or virtual events.
