The NCB Foundation is vowing to ‘Let it Shine’ this Christmas with the 11th staging of its Grant A Wish programme.

This year, the foundation will be dispursing J$15 million to deserving recipients who fall within the categories of registered charities, schools and technology, community heroes, persons with disabilities, and medical assistance.

Sheree Martin, chief executive officer of N.C.B. Foundation, shared that the foundation witnesses incredible stories of resilience, courage, and community spirit each year.

“These stories inspire us and fuel our commitment to serve. So this Christmas, we invite everyone to show us the Jamaican people and organisations from all walks of life who truly deserve to have their wishes become reality,” she said.

She added: “Our Grant a Wish programme is more than just a campaign, it’s a movement of kindness and empowerment which enables us to fulfil our organisation’s purpose in a big way each year. Through Grant a Wish, we are dedicated to empowering people, unlocking dreams and building stronger communities, one wish at a time.”
