Keturah Hamilton Foundation receives US$10k donation to help less fortunate
Jamaican actress Keturah Hamilton and Matthew Parrish of the Zeus Network at the annual Thanksgiving Day treat staged by her Keturah Hamilton Foundation in Los Angeles on November 24. The company donated US$10,000 to the charity.

Jamaican actress Keturah Hamilton and her charity organisation had extra reason to celebrate on Thanksgiving Day, when they received a hefty donation from the Zeus Network, a video streaming company in Los Angeles.

The company donated US$10,000 to the Keturah Hamilton Foundation (KHF) during its sixth Feeding The Less Fortunate treat at Unitarian Universalist Church of Studio City.

The funds were presented to Hamilton by Matthew Parrish, Talent Relations Manager at Zeus Network which is owned by African-American Lemuel Plummer.

"I had just wrapped a mini-series called Starlets. One of the producers that worked on the project, Rhea Shannon, posted our flyer asking for donations, etc. Matthew Parrish saw the post and reached out to Rhea. He also checked out the Foundation's website and then immediately set up a conference call along with Loriel Plummer (Zeus' non-profit executive director),” Hamilton disclosed.

"I was asked about the wonderful work the Foundation was doing, the passion and dedication behind it all. I really didn’t know what to expect, because people sometimes say one thing and don’t follow through. I was delighted to learn the CEO of Zeus Network, Lemuel Plummer, is truly a person who wants to make a difference and knows the importance of being selfless."

Members of the Zeus staff also participated in the feeding programme.

Formed in 2018, the Zeus Network is best known for airing reality programms such as The Real Blac Chyna and The Conversation.

Hamilton, who is from Spanish Town, started KHF seven years ago. She migrated to the United States in her early teens, worked as a model then launched an acting career in television, movies and theatre.

Her credits include roles in the play, Lou Gehrig Did Not Die of Cancer, movies such as Nanny and the hit television series, New Amsterdam.
