MORE THAN 100 senior citizens, including the disabled and shut-ins of the Greenwich Town community, were treated to grocery items for the Christmas season, courtesy of the Shipping Association of Jamaica (SAJ).

The yearly treat for the elderly was held at the Holy Name Catholic Church in that community by volunteers from the SAJ's administrative and port worker staff.

The SAJ has been supporting the Greenwich Town community for many years through various outreach programmes, including sponsorship of the Marcus Garvey Basic School. This treat is symbolic of the SAJ's continued commitment to the community.
