12039381_10153489298425673_6831994100244385336_n(Lanham, MD) A supporter and sponsor of Rebuild Dominica, Inc., Caribbean Cargo DC (CCDC) was the fitting host of a fundraiser on Saturday, September 19th 2015. The event was held at CCDC headquarters in the Washington, DC metro area.

This disaster relief drive was initiated by CCDC Marketing Representative, Barbara Eloi, and assisted by a team of community leaders. Prior to her tenure at CCDC, Eloi was a Customs Officer for the government of Dominica, where she worked on a specialized Customs Reform and Modernization project. Eloi is well-versed with facilitating public outreach efforts via trade shows and related seminars. She is a graduate of the University of the Virgin Islands and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration & Marketing.

During the event, over 10 large shipping barrels were filled with donated clothing, shoes, toys, school supplies, linen, and non-perishable food items. Volunteers sorted through generous items dropped off by supporters of the Dominica disaster relief effort. The event also raised funds through the sales from an on-site cookout and Rebuild Dominica branded t-shirts.

SPAGnVOLA Chocolate Company and Caribbean Agricultural Network Commit to Aid Rebuild Dominica Relief Efforts

When Tropical Storm Erika struck Dominica on August 27th, 2015, the Caribbean Agricultural Network (CAN) was almost complete with finalizing the first international launch of Dominica’s first premium chocolate bar, Chocolat de la Dominique under the SPAGnvola brand. More information is available through CAN.

SPAGnVOLA owners Eric and Cris Reid had traveled to Dominica on February 2015 with CAN leader Gabriel J. Christian designed to produce a premium international chocolate bar from Dominica: Chocolat de la Dominique.

During the trip to Dominica one of the most eloquent boosters for the development of the island’s cocoa industry was fireman Clifton Lewis, aka “Mighty Cocoa Tea” — the name by which he was known as a calypso contest singer. Tragically, both Clifton and his brother Billy were swept away to their deaths during the passage of Tropical Storm Erika by the raging waters of the Roseau River.

In tribute to their commitment to Dominica, CAN and SPAGnVOLA have committed to dedicating the first run of Chocolat de la Dominique to Rebuild Dominica’s aid effort. We thank these business leaders for their generosity.
