IN celebration of Liberation Day, D’Elegance Café provided food to the furloughed employees of Imperial Pacific International.

Restaurant owner and retired teacher Julieta Cunanan delivered lunch, bags of rice and bottled water to 32 employees of IPI at their company-provided housing units in Garapan.

“We encourage them not to lose hope,” Cunanan said.

She has also been providing assistance to churches, schools, the hospital and various non-profit organizations and community activities.

“We’re always looking for ways to give back to the community for supporting our business,” she added. “It is also important to help  people who need help.”

She noted that when the construction of the casino-hotel project began, IPI management contacted D’Elegance to provide food to IPI employees.

“We all know that many businesses have been affected by the global pandemic, so we’re happy that we are able to provide help to some employees,” Cunanan said.

She also expressed her appreciation to the community for patronizing D’Elegance despite the Covid-19 restrictions.

One of the IPI employees, who declined to be identified, said they are very grateful for the generosity of the local community and the businesses on Saipan, including D’Elegance.

“The food they provide is a great help for our daily needs,” he said.
