On Wednesday December 14, 2011, JAMPACT's Annual Christmas treat was held at Hope Gardens in Kingston, Jamaica.   

The treat was for all the children from the four basic schools in JAMPACT's Adopt-A-School Program - Coles, Crescent Road, Maxfield Park and St Steven's basic schools. We are pleased to report that each child received a toy for the holidays and also enjoyed a meal donated by Burger King, followed by cake and ice-cream courtesy of JAMPACT.

We would like to extend our gratitude to our members, families, friends and all who continue to donate to JAMPACT's initiatives, as your generosity enables us to support the children. We thank our supporters on the ground in Jamaica who continue to perform on our behalf, and we thank the teachers and principals who joined efforts to make the treat a success for the kids.

We thank you, and wish you all a happy new year.  You may view pictures of the Christmas Treats here.
