Best Sunshine International Ltd. has donated $20,000 to the Lady Diann Foundation to help in the recovery efforts after Typhoon Soudelor.
BSI chief operating officer Matt Harkness presented the check to Diann Tudela Torres on Friday at Best Sunshine’s live training facility at the T Galleria in Garapan.
“We would like to thank the Best Sunshine International group. We do have a big project coming up and this would definitely help many individuals. We’re very excited,” Torres said.
“We’re very grateful. The foundation focuses to help rebuild the CNMI with the road-to-recovery campaign. This donation is definitely something that could help us, help the community. It’s all going back to the community,” foundation vice president Geri Delacruz said.
“Best Sunshine has been really working hard through the diligent work of a lot of people to help out the residents of Saipan to recover from the typhoon as much as possible. There have been a lot of different causes that have really been worthwhile and we’re very proud to be associated with and this is obviously one of them,” Harkness said.
According to the foundation, they are still planning for the upcoming project but that it would focus on rebuilding the homes destroyed in the typhoon. They are thinking of providing vouchers for the purchase of construction materials.
“The concentration is definitely on construction materials,” Delacruz said.
BSI said they are still looking for other ways to help the community.
“We continue to look at what makes sense for the community for us to be involved in,” Harkness said.
