TELECOMMUNICATIONS firm LIME on Wednesday demonstrated its support for the work of not-for-profit organisation, St Patrick's Foundation, when the company donated $100,000 towards its continued operations.
The foundation is the recipient of the 2012 NCB Impact Award for its service to innercity communities, while LIME is a key sponsor of the annual event which celebrates small and medium-sized businesses that demonstrate outstanding entrepreneurial performance and strong community involvement and impact. Speaking at the handing-over ceremony at The Atrium, National Commercial Bank's head office in New Kingston, LIME's Vice-President for Corporate and SME Sales Edward Gabbidon said: "We recognise the benevolent impact of charitable organisations in the vulnerable communities they serve. As LIME moves to improve the lives of Jamaicans from a technology standpoint, so too do we feel the need to support the less fortunate among us by supporting the organisations that reach them."
