On January 12, 2019, the Rotaract Club of New Kingston started the new year the right way. They coordinated a Treat for the Homeless at the Marie Atkins Night Shelter on Hanover Street, Downtown, Kingston.
Suga Lifestyle was more than happy to be a sponsor for the event, along with Jamaica Producers, Kirk Distributors Ltd., Cari-Med Ltd., Best Dressed Jamaica Ltd. and Refresh Beauty Soap.
I saw the event through and it was a success once again this year. Persons that lived at the home along with other members of the surrounding community, came out in their numbers to receive various services and items offered such as Medical checks, Dental and Cleaning checks, HIV Screening, Personal Grooming, Eye screening by the Lions Club, Canned Food and Clothing Donations.
Suga was delegated the task of adding a personal touch to speak to attendees about proper Nutrition. Their options may have been limited, but points made by conversations with several of them were of great help. For instance, to choose boiled ground provisions instead of rice and peas or plain rice and to drink water instead of sugary, fruit punch or fruit juices.
Kudos to the Rotaract Club of New Kingston, Sponsors, the Lions Club of Mona, Doctors, Physiotherapists, Dentists, Nurses, Barbers, Jamaica Producers and everyone who assisted to make the Treat for the Homeless a great benefit to our people.
