Some 200 lunches and food hampers were delivered on Friday 28th January 2022, to residents of the Mayaro community.  The initiative was spearheaded by the Mayaro Past Pupils Association.

President of the Association, Oliver Alexander, explains the Association is an organization which uplifts Mayaro youths through academic, cultural and sporting initiatives, and it partners with both public and corporate entities to implement those initiatives.

“I am pleased the Association was able to successfully carry out the program especially during this pandemic,” Alexander said.  “The Association will be doing many social programs in 2022.” 

Five tertiary-level students also received hampers for their contribution to the Mayaro Past Pupils Association. 

“Channe Gomes and Chakim Guy, first year students at the University of the West Indies, must be commended for taking the lead role with the distribution,” Alexander noted.

“No one could achieve anything by themselves,” he observed.  “We must say a heartfelt thank you to Green Sol Limited, Trinidad Sea Foods, Tru Valu, Friends of Oliver Alexander, Coastal Dynamics, Tucker Energy, KFC, SM Jaleel Limited, SLWA, Bermudez Biscuits, HADCO, LWC, National Energy, Universal Cereal Limited, Coca Cola and Le Tech Tent Rentals.”

“Special thanks also go out to Don ‘Spanish’ Charles for preparing the lunches,” he added.
