Boom Energy Drink, in partnership with Food For The Poor (FFP) Jamaica, handed over the last of 10 new homes under its ‘Boom with Love’ initiative to 86-year-old Monica Jackson from Treadways District.
Jackson is a retiree who supports her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The family has been struggling to make ends meet for many months.
Jackson is now enjoying her brand new two-bedroom home with a bathroom, a kitchen, and a veranda.
“I am overwhelmed with gratitude for this new home. I needed one for a very long time and even gave up hope that I would have my own. The house I was in before was in a very bad condition, so I was very excited when I got the call from Food For The Poor that I would be getting a house,” said Jackson.
“I want to say thank you to the hard-working staff at Food For The Poor for assisting me and to Boom Energy Drink for making this possible,” she added.
Group Marketing Manager at Wisynco, Karen Rosen, shared that at Boom they strongly believe in giving back.
“The Boom with Love initiative aligns perfectly with our values, as it empowers individuals and families to break free from the cycle of poverty and build a better future. We are proud to be part of this impactful partnership with Food For The Poor Jamaica.”
The corporate social responsibility initiative is also part of FFP’s Build Back the Love for Jamaica campaign, which focuses on providing housing for those in need while implementing sustainable, income-generating projects.
Marsha Burrell Rose, Marketing and Development Manager at FFP Jamaica expressed her gratitude for the partnership.
“We are incredibly grateful to Boom Energy Drink for their unwavering commitment to the welfare of Jamaicans in need. Through their support, we have been able to provide shelter to those who require it the most. This final handover marks a milestone in our joint efforts to Build Back the Love for Jamaica, and we are honoured to witness the positive impact it has on Monica Jackson’s life and her family,” said Rose.
Since 2020, Boom has sponsored 30 houses through Food For The Poor, impacting the lives of individuals and families across the country.
