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.
Laptop Donation On Monday September 14th, we donated 4 refurbished laptops to Friendship Primary school. The laptops are designated for the NEET library that we built for the school years prior. The school has since added another building onto the library.
In partnership with the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), the Negril Chamber took the initiative to organize over 1,000 grocery and produce filled care packages to distribute to Negril community members most in need. This video illustrates the coordination, togetherness and effort it took to organize and execute such an endeavor. Though the Chamber has helped over a thousand community members on this day there are still many people in need at this time.
