COLE BAY:— The Motorworld community outreach team has been on the move throughout various areas in St. Maarten/ St. Martin to host mobile Soup Kitchens. This major initiative is being coordinated in partnership with Hyundai and Shell, who have contributed aid of $150,000 in support of a variety of post-hurricane relief efforts.
“The purpose of the Mobile Soup Kitchens is to provide assistance to the residents in need with a warm meal,” says Tariq Amjad, Managing Director of the Motorworld group of companies. “Though our primary source of business is automotive sales, we take pleasure and pride in the ability to give back to our local communities, which is extremely rewarding.”
Through the mobile Soup Kitchens, Motorworld provides everything required to set-up and share the soups to various individuals. This includes a Hyundai service tent, at least two (2) types soups, which has primarily been a chicken and vegetarian soup, made by several locally-renowned caterers, as well as bowls, spoons, napkins, and everything required onsite to facilitate the set-up and breakdown of the Soup Kitchens. Motorworld’s staff is also on-hand to assist with serving the community.
Motorworld’s community outreach team launched the Soup Kitchens on Thursday, November 23 in partnership with the Government of St. Maarten along with the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Zagersgut, on a day recognized internationally as Thanksgiving Day. This was ensured by Soup Kitchens hosted onsite at Motorworld and Caribbean Auto on Friday, November 24 in order to reach out to the residents in the surrounding communities in Cole Bay, Cay Bay and Simpson Bay.
The Soup Kitchens will continue throughout the week. The schedule is as follows:
- Monday, November 27 at Festival Village in Philipsburg from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
- Tuesday, November 28 at SOS Radio station in Marigot from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
