LPIA Community Gives Back to Three Local Communities

Three local charities will benefit from the generosity of passengers and employees at Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA).

The AIDS Foundation of The Bahamas, Ranfurly Home for Children and Lupus Bahamas 242 all recently received donations from the airport community.

Proceeds from NAD’s first Health Run/Walk held in April went to the AIDS Foundation. Nearly 100 airport tenants, airline workers, NAD employees and friends turned out to get fit and to support a worthy cause.

“The health and wellbeing of our employees is important and each year, we dedicate time to educate our staff. This year, our activities concluded with the health walk and we are pleased to donate the funds to an organisation that has participated in the health fair every year,” said Stewart Steeves, President & CEO at NAD.

“The funds will be used to sponsor after-school care for students living with AIDS and HIV.”

The Ranfurly Home for Children received donations from funds collected in the US terminal waterfall.

Passengers leaving the country often make a wish and toss coins and casino chips into the waterfall. Every quarter, NAD collects the coins and donates them to a deserving charity. Home President, Alexandra Maillis-Lynch, is pleased that the boys and girls of Ranfurly are benefiting from the kindness of strangers.

The third charity to receive support from the airport community was Lupus Bahamas 242.

On World Lupus Day, persons throughout NAD were encouraged to P.O.P (Put on Purple) For Lupus and raise awareness for the debilitating illness.

Members of NAD’s Finance Department donated proceeds from a Department fundraising exercise to the organisation.
