Consortium Donates to Georgeville, Crooked Tree and San Pedro
The Consortium For Belizean Development, Inc. inaugurates its adoption of the village of Georgeville with its first donated shipment. Supplies of personal items and Belizean food staples of rice, beans and flour were distributed on Monday August 24, 2009 at the Georgeville Community Center. About 100 people showed up to receive the donated items.
Consortium’s Western Region Vice President, Ms. Verona Burks, and Eastern Region Board Member, Mr. Michael Soberanis joined Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Rene Montero and other volunteers at the center in Georgeville to distribute the donated items.
Plans for the adoption of Georgeville were initiated in late April, when Hon. Montero, visited Los Angeles and discussed with officers of the organization the possibility of the Consortium adopting the village.
Other donations, which came directly from Consortium’s San Diego Chapter, include school supplies to the Crooked Tree Village School and medical supplies to the Poly Clinic in San Pedro. Adela Pederson, of Consortium’s San Diego Chapter, coordinated San Diego’s donations earlier this summer during her visit to Belize.
The Consortium looks forward to assisting with future donations.
