On Saturday, October 8th, the Jamaica Energy Partners and West Kingston Power Partners, planted over 200 seedlings at the Hollywell Recreational Park for National Tree Planting Day. We currently have over four hundred healthy, native plants at the park, that help to sustain the watershed in the Blue and John Crow Mountains as well as to enhance the quality air we breathe. Incidentally, our reforestation programme also provides employment for the farmers in the community, as we provide income to them for plant maintenance. Thanks to everyone who assisted in making our planet healthy and sustainable! See you again next year!
On November 22nd, JEP hosted their annual Blood Drive! The aim of the drive was to encourage JEP staff members and the public to be active blood donors. Persons in good health can donate blood every three months and every time you donate you can save the lives of three people! Be a Hero, Donate blood today!
JEP spent a productive Labour Day in Old Habour Bay. Our first stop was the Marine Terminal Bathing Beach where staff and community members came together to complete the rehabilitation and upgrade of the changing rooms and to beautify the grounds. We then headed to the Old Harbour Fire station where we renovated a change room and donated vital life-saving equipment to the Fire Station. We thank our residents for their ongoing support as together, we power our way to a brighter community.
