The Canada Representative Office of The Jamaica National Group has partnered with the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf (CCCD) Alumni Association, in Canada, to host its first fundraising dinner to acquire computers for the school.

Maria Lawrence-Brown, president of the CCCD Alumni Association and former principal of the Kingston-based school, said that the fundraising event will take place on October 21, 2017, at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Brampton, Canada.

"This is the first project of the association, and we want to raise funds to purchase computers for the centre. The students are visual learners, therefore, computers are an essential learning aid for them," she noted. The target is to purchase 20 computers.

Persons can support the initiative by purchasing tickets to the event; make a donation to the school; place an advertisement in the programme; sponsor a child; or donate through the alumni's website at www.cccdalumni.com, or contact at 647-891-9400 or 416-706-9356 for further information.
