Port St. Maarten volunteers to help clean-up Middle Region after passing of Hurricane Gonzalo

25 staff members from Port St. Maarten on Sunday were seen in the district of Middle Region helping with the national clean-up effort in connection with the passing of Hurricane Gonzalo on Monday.


The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Port St. Maarten Mark Mingo is encouraging other government owned companies and private sector businesses to volunteer their time on the weekends to help the people in the districts to remove debris.


Port St. Maarten staff will be out next weekend to continue with their social corporate responsibility to help the people in the districts in cleaning-up hurricane related debris.


“Destination St. Maarten/St. Martin has already bounced back. The cruise ships are back and stay-over visitors are also here. As a society, we need to work and help each other in need. When disaster strikes, we are all our brothers and sisters keeper.


“We have come together in the past to help each other, and now is the time to do so again in order to move our country forward together. If every company pools their staff together and volunteers their time each weekend, we can do wonders and really make a change within the districts. This benefits the neighborhoods and the destination. We will definitely be back next weekend,” CEO Mark Mingo said on Sunday.
