St. Maarten Cable TV Announces Caribbean Cable & Telecommunications Association’s Grant Of $1,000 To The Animal Welfare Foundation

Through the generosity of the Caribbean Cable and Telecommunications Association (CCTA), Animal Welfare Foundation is the recipient of a $1,000 grant from the association’s 2014 Community Charities Program. Animal Welfare Foundation was nominated for the grant by St. Maarten Cable TV, a member of the CCTA and the cable and telecommunications provider for the island of St. Maarten.
Animal Welfare Foundation was chosen as a grant recipient because of the outstanding service and assistance it provides to the community. The check for $1,000 was presented by an employee of St. Maarten Cable TV on July 7, 2014.

Eleven charities were nominated for the 2014 grants, and the association’s board of directors voted unanimously to award $1,000 grants to all.
The 11 Community Charities Program grant recipients were nominated by the following cable and telecommunications operators: St. Maarten Cable TV; Bermuda CableVision; BVI Cable TV; Choice Cable TV of Puerto Rico; General Satellite Network Company of Jamaica; Innovative Cable TV St. Croix; Innovative Cable TV St. Thomas-St. John; Liberty Cablevision of Puerto Rico; T.V. Distribution Systems of Curacao; WestStar TV Limited of the Cayman Islands; and Wireless Telecommunication Network of St. Maarten.
