JAMPACT would like to express its sincerest appreciation and gratitude to those who participated in our raffle drive which culminating on at the Mixer on March 28, 2012 at Negril Restaurant.

As always, it was wonderful to see familiar faces, meet new enthusiasts and supporters. Certainly, everyone made new friends and embraced old ones.

Your donations at the mixer and all proceeds from the raffle sale will go directly towards our capital campaign to rebuild Maxfield Park Basic School under our initiative- "Educate A Child - Build A School- Strengthen a Nation". You will hear more about our Campaign in the coming year and we look forward to your participation and support.
