Jamalcoans Gave of their time and energy on Labour Day

Over 50 employees from the Jamalco workforce and 80 community members turned out on Labour Day to participate in various projects in the parishes of Clarendon and Manchester.

The Jamalco team spearheaded six projects in communities in its operating areas. The projects were the Lionel Town Police Station, Gravel Hill Post Office, York Town Primary School, Ramble Community Centre, Frankfield Primary School and Farm Postal Agency. Several team members also assisted at other Bravo! projects. The Lionel Town Police station which services 42 communities in South Clarendon is now boasting a brand new look. The exterior of the building received a fresh coat of paint and the general surroundings were beautified.A similar exercise was carried out at the Frankfield Primary & Infant School in South Manchester and the York Town Primary School where workers gave of their time and energy to paint the school and beautify the schools’ surroundings. Construction work was done at the Ramble Community Centre, the Gravel Hill Post Office and the Farm Postal Agency.Senior Community Relations Officer Phillip Biggs said, “The Police Station was selected because it was well in need of a fresh coat of paint. Our company takes it social responsibility very seriously and the police are doing an excellent job and must be supported.” Inspector at the Station Lilieth Campbell showered praises on Jamalco for being a good corperate citizen. "The partnership and excellent relationship which has been forged between the volunteers and the policemen and women attached to the station, fits perfectly with the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCCF) thrust of community policing,” Mrs. Campbell said.Principal of the Frankfield Primary School, Mrs. Marcia Lewis-Brown said the work done by the Jamalco team is greatly appreciated and “I looking forward to your continued support. The school has many needs and this initiative will certainly assist us to overcome some of our challenges,” she noted.
