Holiday Message from JAMPwreathACT President,  Dale Todd
Every journey starts with a step, and about 18 months ago JAMPACT took the first steps toward completing its biggest ever initiative, the rebuilding of the Maxfield Park Children's Home Basic School.  Since that genesis of this effort to enhance the futures of the Maxfield Park students, by providing them with classrooms that don't leak or have termites, a new computer lab and clean restrooms, we have secured government approval, obtained estimates from qualified contractors, and, most importantly, began raising money to meet this great need.  Continue reading

Thank You for Supporting Our Holiday Party



JAMPACT would like to express our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to those who attended our Annual Holiday Party at Fashion 40 Lounge on December 14th. Your continued support makes all the difference. 


As always, it was wonderful to see familiar faces and to meet new enthusiasts. Certainly, everyone made new friends and embraced old ones. The Carol's Daughter giveaways, raffles and goodie bags filled with delicious chocolates were a hit!  Perhaps the best treat of the night was the Jamaican fruit cake we enjoyed at the end of the evening.


Your donations at the Holiday Party will go directly towards our 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.


Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff of Fashion 40 who was extremely accommodating throughout the evening.

Happy Holidays and have a great 2012 everyone.
