JETBLUE has been recognized by Children of Jamaica Outreach (COJO) for its philanthropic outlook that allowed the New York based charitable organization to attain higher heights.

At a welcome reception hosted by The Door Restaurant in New York City in honour of former prime minister PJ Patterson on December 5, COJO chair Gary Williams said that JetBlue had been "outstanding in its support of the organization from inception" which has helped COJO earn funds to provide scholarships and support their philanthropic activities in Jamaica. Patterson was the guest speaker at the COJO 20th anniversary scholarship awards gala at the JFK Hilton on December 6.

The 20-year-old COJO has since 1994 raised and donated funds to several children's homes and non-governmental agencies in Jamaica including the Alpha Boys Home, the City of Refuge, Marigold Child Care Centre and the Glenhope Nursery.

In addition to scholarships to secondary and tertiary institutions, COJO has equipped libraries, computer centres and sports facilities.
