The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS THE WEEKEND STAR -

In an ef­fort to bring com­fort to at-risk youth dur­ing the Yule­tide sea­son, Uni­comer Ja­maica Lim­ited, through its brand Courts, has col­lab­o­rated with re­gional and lo­cal sup­pli­ers to do­nate fur­ni­ture val­ued at more than J$3 mil­lion to seven chil­dren’s homes.

The pre­sen­ta­tion was made ear­lier this week to Wort­ley Girls Home, An­nie Daw­son Chil­dren’s Home, Sun­beam Chil­dren’s Home, Han­bury Chil­dren’s Home, New Vi­sion Chil­dren’s Home, Robin’s Nest Chil­dren’s Home, and the Mus­tard Seed Com­mu­ni­ties.

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Uni­comer Ja­maica Den­nis Har­ris said the do­na­tion will ben­e­fit more than 500 chil­dren.

“Uni­comer has al­ways prided it­self on be­ing re­spon­sive to the needs of the vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers of our so­ci­ety. Giv­ing back is im­por­tant to us, and over the years our ‘Share the Joy’ ini­tia­tive has touched not only per­sons in need, but pro­vided sup­port for var­i­ous char­i­ties and non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions that han­dle day-to day care,” he said.

Courts was sup­ported by sup­pli­ers: Boss Fur­ni­ture, Bernards, Crown­mark, Werner, Oster, TCL, and Hamil­ton Beach.
