San Pedro Police Cadets and Foreva Fancy spread Holiday Cheer
Tuesday, December 30th, 2014
On Monday December 22nd, The San Pedro Police Cadets along with owners and models of San Pedro’s Foreva Fancy Boutique took to the streets to spread a little holiday cheer. Led by Cadet Instructor PC Juan Choc and Deputy of San Pedro Police Inspector Henry Jemmott, the group loaded up the police mobile and several golf carts as they made their way around town.
This year, the group efforts went towards the communities of San Pedrito and the DFC Area. Loaded with gift packages, the groups made their way through the communities where families and children awaited the well received gifts. The packages consisted of food items such as flour, rice and beans, clothing items and of course toys for the children. According to PC Choc, “One of the main purposes of the cadet corps is to not only instill discipline, but to learn a lot about life skills, and through this, we teach them to care and be a part of the community. It also shows the community that the police and people care.”
Owner of Foreva Fancy Eduardo Aguilar also expressed his excitement to be a part of the drive. Aguilar mentioned that like other shows, the proceeds of this year’s Foreva Fancy Winter Fashion Show went directly towards purchasing gifts for the needy. With the support of Foreva Fancy, the South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch and the business community, the group was able to provide gift packages to over 30 families with plenty of toys to go around.
PC Choc extends much gratitude to all partners in the initiative, with special thanks to Foreva Fancy. Choc also thanks Inspector Jemmott for his active role in supporting the cadets and the Christmas Initiative. The San Pedro Cadets and Foreva Fancy Boutique wish residents and visitors of Ambergris Caye a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
