To support nearby residents, Seaboard Marine’s offices in Kingston, Jamaica, participated last weekend in a 5K walk/run organized by the Shipping Association of Jamaica. The event raised funds for education within the local community it resides and to fund a mobile health clinic. Further, our Seaboard Marine Jamaica office sought the participation of business partners, colleagues and customers among the broader shipping industry, to join them in this worthy cause.
The event was a tremendous success. Participant fees raised funds for several needs within the district, near the Port of Kingston. Among the causes supported were the salaries of local teachers and a mobile health clinic that provides residents of this community with medical services at little to no cost.
CorahAnn Sylvester, CEO of Seaboard Marine Jamaica, said, “In Jamaica, serving our customers is always our top priority. However, supporting our local community is also of great importance and something we take great pride in. We know that when our neighbors thrive, so does our business.”
