“Many lives were touched and this event has set a platform for greater things in the future. We made over 200 presentations during the course of the day,” he told the Jamaica Observer.
The event, staged through his Busy 2020 Helping Hands Foundation, saw children being presented with much-needed school supplies.
“My expectation was to assist as many children as possible with a back-to-school package, as well as to treat them to a fun-filled day before school reopens. So yes, I think my expectations were met and somewhat exceeded as the sponsors assisted with toys, gift bags, and phone credit for prizes throughout the day,” said Busy Signal, who hails from the community of Buxton.
Sponsors include Pepsi Jamaica, Chancellor Insurance Agency, Bahia Principe Resort, Island Leisure Tours and Excursions, All Signs Ltd, Spicy Nice, Wild Rides, Vivid Pixx, Mr Nash Stores, and Fontana Pharmacy.The dancehall act said he is hoping to make the event an annual one.
“For the next event, we would love engage more sponsors, not just to make donations, but to be physically present at the event. We are definitely looking forward to making this annual event as I feel honoured to be able to do something like this for my home community of Buxton,” he said.
