Supreme Ventures continues to give back
In spite of the intermittent showers throughout the day, the Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) annual Bun and Cheese Easter Egg Hunt held at the Hope Zoo on Easter Monday was successful.
In its fourth year, SVL upped the ante and brought added Easter excitement to children from various children's homes in the Kingston and St Andrew area.
Last year's staging took the form of a sports day, and this year, it was an educational zoo tour. Radio personality Jenny-Jenny hosted the days' activities and ignited friendly rivalry among the children and their team leaders.
There were rides, games, rock climbing, bounce-a-bouts, zip lining, beanbag toss, merry-go-round, target shooting, face painting and art and craft that kept children entertained all day.
Lunch comprised a variety of favourites including: hamburgers, hot dogs chicken nuggets with fries, patties, popcorn, fruits, cotton candy, popsicles, gummies, smoothies, cookies and chocolates.
BRINGING JOY TO KIDS
Brian George, president and CEO of SVL, said the company will continue to bring joy to the children in homes and plans are already underway to extend the treat to even more homes.
"The fun day allows the Supreme Ventures team as well as volunteers to interact with these wards adding high energy and excitement. It is our corporate responsibility to give back to the homes; the children come out with no expectations and at the end of the day we make sure that they leave with unforgettable memories. The zoo tour was a well received part of the day and we thought it was most important to include it to expand their experience. We will continue to do this and include homes outside of Kingston for the fifth staging of the event," George said.
Homes that benefitted this year included Walker's Place of Safety, Maxfield Park Children's Home, The Nest, St. Andrew Parish Church Home for Girls, Reddie's Place of Safety S.O.S Children's Village, Strathmore Gardens and the Sunbeam Children's Home.
