2017 Joann Charles Holiday Food Drive

2017 Joann Charles Holiday Food Drive

Welcome to our 11th annual food drive. This year the food drive has incorporated the name of Joann Charles who sadly passed away earlier this year. Joann was the main driving force behind the food drive from inception until her untimely passing, and we found it fitting to honor her memory in this way.

This year we will be assisting individual families who are in dire need. They will be referred to us by people in the know.

Let's show our Warrior spirit and help to provide the underprivileged with fundamental items which will enhance their daily life.

Please get your friends, co-workers and family involved. Thank you all for supporting this food drive. Donation details are outlined below.

"...If yuh clothes tear up
Or yuh shoes burst off,
You could still jump up when music play.
Old lady, young baby, everybody could dingolay...
Dingolay, ay, ay, ay ay,
Dingolay ay, ay, ay..."

RIP Shadow....The legend will live on in music...

If you still want to give food, you can link Brownsugar who will be trying to coordinate things this weekend.
