Care Package Giveaway On Saturday, February 27th we gave away 30 care packages to families in our community. Much of the produce is grown locally at our family farm. We also teach our children to plant fruit trees that the community benefits from once they begin to bear fruit. We continue to give care packages out twice per month in the Negril community. Each package included Canned food - mackerel, sardine, tuna, box milk, beans, mixed veg, plantain, bok choy, banana, custard apple, green banana, yam, sweet potato Thank you to all the volunteers that came out last week and thank you as always to donors, supports, and sponsors of NEET! We had a great day and together we are making a real difference.
Resource Center Now Open! We've officially opened our resource center and accepted our first set of students. The resource center while observing international CoVid protocols gives students access to a place where they have free access to internet and a place to get their school work done. Unfortunately many students around the country don't have access at home. We're aiming to tackle that problem in Negril with the opening of our resource center.
On Saturday December 19th, we were fortunate to be able to give away 23 care packages to families in need. We followed up with another 21 packages on December 24th. Each care package included flour, rice, sardines, tuna, corn beef, tin mackerel, oil and milk. Due to the ongoing pandemic we staggered the times in which people could come and pick up their care packages. Thanks do continued help from our supporters we aim to continue giving away care packages throughout the duration of the pandemic. Since start of the virus and the lockdowns that followed we've given away over 160 care packages.
