Some key Highway 2000 stakeholders collaborated on a project to donate needed school supplies to the Alexander Basic School in Clarendon on February 11, 2022. The early childhood institution is located in one of the communities impacted by the construction of the May Pen to Williamsfield toll road.
NROCC recognizes the challenges being faced by many parents and schools due to the pandemic and as such, the company donated school items (notebooks, coloring books, pencils, crayons), bags and water bottles to the students and the teachers, as well as sanitation supplies for the school.
According to principal, Mrs. Claudia Baker, the contribution will help to make a difference to the children and the staff while, Managing Director, Mr. Stephen Edwards said it was heartwarming to see the children’s reaction and noted that NROCC was happy to be a part of this worthwhile and timely initiative.
Other corporate partners in the project were Jamaica Infrastructure Operators, China Harbor Engineering Co. Ltd, TransJamaican Highway, Jamaica North South Highway Company, Smith Wagner International and Stanley Jamaica Engineers.
