NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Rotary Club of New Providence (RCNP) partnered with AML Foods, Limited, (Cost Right) and the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) South Central Division in distributing more than 100 grocery care packages in the Yellow Elder Gardens community this week.
The Yellow Elder Neighbourhood Watch and other local civic groups also assisted in the initiative on Thursday.
The event, which took place at the Tom “The Bird” Grant Park, also saw the Rotary Club donating some 20 tablets to schools in the area — namely Yellow Elder Primary, Woodcock Primary and Government High School (GHS).
Among those present for the initiative included Chief Superintendent Mark Barrett and other RBPF officers; Club Past President Valentino Hamilton, President-elect Lisa Deveaux and other RCNP members and junior Rotarians; AML Foods Marketing Manager Melissa Major and other team members; GHS Principal Eloise Whyms; Yellow Elder Primary Principal Jennice Johnson; Woodcock Primary representative and School Counselor Sharmaine Forbes; Yellow Elder Neighbourhood Watch President Carlos Carey and other members; representatives of the Immortals; and other neighborhood stakeholders.
“Make no mistake about it, these partnerships, are very important to the social well-being of our nation,” said Barrett.
“A lot of people are hurting and we recognize this.”
