AMERICUS — PharmaCentra, LLC recently hosted a Back to School Bash for the children of its employees on the grounds of PharmaCentra. More than 130 PharmaCentra employees and children took advantage of the event.
“The PharmaCentra’s Human Resource team along with the company’s newly formed Fun Committee spearheaded the event and activities to help their employees financially by providing the children with free school supplies,” said Kim Christmas, vice president of Human Resources and Community Relations at PharmaCentra. The Fun Committee stuffed 130 book bags full of the required school supplies for the children of PharmaCentra’s employees to prepare them for the start of the school year.
“PharmaCentra is a great place to work. Not only do they care about their employees, but also our families,” said Emmanuel Robinson, Customer Service representative at
PharmaCentra. “I really appreciate what PharmaCentra did, supplying book bags filled with school supplies for our kids.” Robinson’s daughter, Bentlee, is attending kindergarten at Sumter County Primary School in Americus.
The appreciation was echoed by Jahaira Sabater, healthcare specialist at PharmaCentra. “PharmaCentra really cares and helps their employees and community! It meant a lot to me because being a single parent is tough, so having a workplace and community that cares and help is wonderful,” said Sabater. “The event was fun for all ages.” Sabater’s daughters Zoraida, 16, attends Schley County High School and Leilani, 14, Schley County Middle School.
Some employees said the event gave them a financial break and a chance for the children to get back into the swing of things and go back into the classroom positive. The family-friendly activities included entertainment, music, food, face painting, jumping castle, selfie photo booth, and bingo. Firefighters with Americus Fire & Emergency Services were on hand to educate the children on fire safety as well as to grill hot-dogs and hamburgers for the employees and their children. In addition, their Fire Safety House and a fire engine were on display for children to tour. Americus
