As we have gotten our start to the New Year, we may start to wonder how we are going to restock our fridges after all the Christmas leftovers have finished and it isn’t even the end of January yet. So imagine the Homeless after the most generous time of 2017 is over. They may have run out of food supplies too.
When shopping or if you have any extra in the cupboard, please pick up a few Canned Food items and support the New Kingston Rotaract Club’s Canned Food drive that lasts until this Thursday, January 11. If you happened to skip cleaning out the closets at the end of 2017, they are having a Clothes Drive as well. Note that Monetary Contributions are accepted too and the New Kingston Rotaract Club is based in New Kingston, Jamaica.
Donated items will help to feed and clothe the Homeless at the Marie Atkins Shelter in Downtown, Kingston. The shelter is run by The Poor Relief Department and feeds and clothes a bit over 100 homeless persons each night.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org,text or call 876-387-2827 or 876-357-0308 to find out where you can drop off your donations.
Keep up with the New Kingston Rotaract Club by following them on Instagram @nkrcjamaica and if you are between the ages of 18-30 see how you can join them!
