For the second consecutive year, Elnet Maritime Agency hosted the children of the Grand Bahama Children’s Home to a post-thanksgiving feast and fun-filled day. Their mission was to share God’s love with the less fortunate during this holiday season.
“It was a time for sharing and fun where we had the opportunity to show God’s love. We prayed with the children, sang songs and enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast,” said Janet Mills-Shepherd, Vice-president of Human Resources for Elnet Maritime.
Pastor Audley Swain of Grace Bible Fellowship was there to share an important message to the children. After their meal they enjoyed bouncing castles, slides, music, popcorn and cotton candy. Elnet also provided every child with a t-shirt and coloring book.
“Our CEO Mr. Ellie Hepburn came up with this incredible idea and our Elnet team worked together to execute this special event” said Mrs. Mills-Shepherd (tittel) “ Specail thanks to Tabitha Bowe, Tanya Hall, Shandell Johnson and Patricia Rolle who all played a special role. It was a rewarding day for us all,.”
Elnet Maritime plans to continue this annual event and is committed to assisting the Grand Bahama Children’s Home.
“The Grand Bahama Children’s Home is grateful to Elnet for their generosity to our children. Its gestures such as these that ensure our children reach their full potential. I hope that seeing the children’s smiles and hearing their laughter gives the management and staff of Elnet a great feeling of satisfaction,” said Lynne Fraino, GBCH Committee Member.
