Freeport, Bahamas – Buckeye Bahamas (BORCO) helped spread a little Christmas cheer by ensuring families won’t go hungry this holiday season.  Last weekend the BORCO family handed out 400 food parcels (including turkey, rice, grits, sugar and flour) to the Pinder’s Point and Lewis Yard communities.

“This gift giving initiative continues to be an annual drive for BORCO/Buckeye,” said Kim Pratt, Business Coordinator at Buckeye Bahamas.

“It is a joy for me to organize this event each year, on behalf of the company, and it pleases me that the spirit of giving is so prevalent with everyone who volunteers each year to go out in the community.”

Employees from various departments at BORCO helped to distribute the goods in the communities, starting early Saturday morning.  According to Pratt, since BORCO began this annual gift-giving exercise more and more employees have volunteered, which is a great sign that the giving spirit is trickling down to all.

“Buckeye recognizes the importance of not only being good corporate citizens but by giving back to the community in which we live and work with everyday,” said President of Buckeye International Pipelines and Terminals, Khalid Muslih.

“It is always wonderful when our company and staff join together to make the holidays a little brighter for others.  I am very pleased I could be here to join Kim and her team in this magnanimous effort.”
