Caye International Bank’s Chairman, Joel Nagel, Together With Pastor Ian Zaldivar Spread Cheer at Living Word Church's 10th Annual Holiday Toy Drive - The holiday season is a time of giving, of celebrating life, and spending time with those who matter the most. Through its annual Holiday Toy Drive, Living Word Church wishes to spread as much positivity and love to the people of San Pedro, bringing families together and putting the biggest smiles on children’s faces. On December 18, 2020, 1,000 toys were distributed at the Hon. Louise Sylvestre Sporting Field in San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye. In total, 1,000 children received a special toy from Santa, a holiday cupcake, and a hearty apple to ring in the holiday season. Words cannot fully describe the happiness and gratitude that was seen in the smiles of every single child as they received their special gift from Santa.
Additionally, though, this year Pastor Ian Zaldivar of Living Word Church together with Chairman Joel Nagel went further than ever before in their mission to help spread the Holiday cheer to the people of San Pedro. In addition to the toy drive, 100 food baskets, containing household essentials and grocery items, were provided to the families affected most by COVID-19 this year as a way for them to enjoy the holidays at home. “This year’s toy drive has been a little different than in previous years,” said Mr. Nagel. “There is so much need out there right now, especially for basic food supplies, that we decided to go with smaller toys for the kids and dedicate more money to helping feed families.”
