TakeCare Employee Foundation to Present Grants to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School, the Oasis Empowerment Center and Sanctuary Incorporated

TakeCare Foundation presented three $5,000 grants to local non-profit organizations including the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School, the Oasis Empowerment Center and Sanctuary, Incorporated on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 3 p.m.

“We awarded $5,000 to the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School to assist its project called, ‘A Healthy Village Begins with Us,’ which aims to promote healthy living in the community, $5,000 to the Oasis Empowerment Center to assist with its Creative Therapy Workforce project, and another $5,000 to Sanctuary, Incorporated to aid its Street Project Outreach Program,” said Sylvia Duenas, TakeCare Foundation Advisor.

St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School is a college preparatory institution offering academic programs and activities that provides students with a balance of academic rigor, creative expression and healthy living. The Oasis Empowerment Center offers supportive services, case management, transportation and housing for individuals with disabilities, in recovery, victims of abuse or in poverty, while Sanctuary Incorporated provides community housing and shelter, drug, alcohol and rehab services to Guam’s adolescents.

The Foundation is comprised of employees of TakeCare Insurance and the FHP Health Center who are devoted to charitable and educational causes that enhance the health, wellness and welfare of individuals, families and our community.  The employee-driven organization plays a major role in assisting with the contributions and the selection process.  Through their kind donations, recipients of the grant are able to fulfill their mission and goals that in turn benefit the entire community.

The TakeCare Foundation grant presentations occur in two cycles, June and December.  Please visit http://www.takecareasia.com/corporate_foundation.php for more information.
