RESIDENTS of Pleasant View, more popularly known as Rasta Lane Gully, in Bull Bay had their share of happiness increased for the Easter season with a visit by members of the NestlÚ Jamaica Limited team on Holy Thursday, March 29.

The occasion was a community treat conceptualised by officers from the Bull Bay Police Station and St Andrew East Rural Member of Parliament Juliet Holness to engage residents of the community in fun activities throughout the day, culminating in the donation of food and other perishable items.

NestlÚ Jamaica donated cases of breakfast cereal, peanut punch and Nesfruty juice crystals to the community initiative aimed at increasing camaraderie among the residents and ultimately reducing crime in the area.

“We want our neighbours, our customers and consumers to enjoy nutritious, healthy products and we believe in giving back to them after all they've given to us,” a news release from NestlÚ quotes its Country Manager Daniel Caron. “Jamaicans have served us as employees and as consumers. We must return the love – and what better way than to give them a little more in their baskets this season.”

In a separate initiative, the company made a donation to the Duhaney Park Sports Club's annual community development programme which benefits approximately 800 residents.

NestlÚ said that the donation of breakfast cereals, flavoured milks and Nesfruty juice crystals forms part of the fulfilment of its global purpose and value to enhance the quality of life and contribute to a healthier future.

“What we give back to Jamaicans at this time is token for the loyalty they have shown to us, the ultimate gift at Easter — good food, good life, from our family to theirs,” the release quotes Garfene Grandison, digital and PR manager who assisted in coordinating both donations.
