While organizing the toy giveaway, we had the chance to contact and develop relationships with needy families
Panama City, Panama (PRWEB) January 14, 2009
The real estate company commissioned a minibus to bring 12 children and four parent chaperones to a the final performance of the festival, a free, open-air concert on in Casco Viejo's Plaza de la Catedral on January 17th.
This effort grew out of Templar Panama's Christmas Toy Drive, explained Martin Lamb, Templar's President of Investment.
"While organizing the toy giveaway, we had the chance to contact and develop relationships with needy families," Lamb said. "We couldn't help everyone and people's needs continue after Christmas. So we see little things like this as a way to reach more people and help them access Panama's many cultural opportunities year round."
The excursion includes round-trip transportation to the concert and lunch for the group.
This is the type of effort than any company can and should make, Lamb said, adding that admission to the Jazz Festival event is free, and the company rents cars for business every day.
"We take things like going to a free concert for granted, but for families who can't afford transportation, even these events are usually out of reach."
