Youngsters donate to the homeless
Students from the Family Centre’s Youth Leadership Academy have donated a range of cosmetics and toiletries to help the needy.
Zafiyah Walters, Sionae Sampson, Hazajae Outerbridge, Tyger Smith and Zanai’A Bascome went to Harbour Light offices on King Street with boxes filled with goods for those on the streets and in emergency housing.
A Salvation Army spokesman said the donation — which also included sandwiches and cans of water to support the Street Ministry — were more than welcome.
The spokesman said: “Although visibly hot from the humidity and summer heat, one could not miss their passion, commitment and pride in executing this final accomplishment as members of this leadership academy.
“We learnt their names as well as the fact that all were heading to the Berkeley Institute having graduated from Dellwood Middle School.”
The spokesman thanked the youths and the Family Centre for their contributions.
