Over 700 children and elderly persons in St. Thomas are slated to benefit from the Mayor of Morant Bay’s annual Christmas treat, slated for Monday (December 20), at the Anglican Church Hall in Morant Bay.
The beneficiaries will be treated to a tasty meal, food baskets and gifts, including toys for the children.
“As Mayor, it behooves me to show some care to the poor and the less fortunate at this time,” said Mayor Hanif Brown.
He told JIS News that despite the limited resources, he is hoping for an improved staging of the event this year over last year. “What we’ve done this year is to increase the number of potential donors.under the circumstance things have been going fairly well,” he said.
Mayor Brown expressed appreciation to the many companies and individuals, who have given their support and appealed for other donors to come forward and support the worthy cause.
Contributions can be sent directly to the Mayor’s Christmas Fund at the St. Thomas Parish Council or by calling the Council at 982-2562.
Following the treat, Mayor Brown will travel to the Rudolph Elder Park in Morant Bay for the official tree lighting ceremony.
