The children had something extra to celebrate when crew members from the Freewinds stopped by the YMCA centers in San Nicolas and Dakota during the recent Christmas dinners for the kids presenting gifts that added extra holiday cheer for all involved.
The Freewinds arrived with a big gift box full of individually wrapped gifts, one for every child of every age. As the gifts were handed out the excitement and enthusiasm among the kids continued to build with the kids ripping open their gifts to see what was inside. All were very happy with what they had received.
Ms. Inki Geerman of the YMCA Aruba commented, “Thank you Freewinds for donating gifts for our Christmas celebration of our afterschool program. Your support makes the holidays extra magical for our participants while creating beautiful memories. We appreciate this very much!”
“Contributing to the local community is something that the Freewinds has always been noted for over the many years the ship has been calling to Aruba. It is something we enjoy doing. This is especially true during the Holiday Season. Seeing the happy faces of the children is something very special” said the Port Captain of the Freewinds, Mr. Ken Weber.
