A group of Campion College students are reopening an appeal for Jamaicans to donate gently-worn khaki uniforms to students in need, as schools reopen for face-to-face classes.

UniCycle Jamaica launched its flagship programme recently to build on the success of their third drive in 2021, which again saw over 300 khaki uniforms, 1,000 masks and school supplies being donated to several high schools across the island. 

Back again, UniCylce Jamaica is partnering with Campion College and Fontana Pharmacies across the island to deliver uniforms at no cost to the students or their families.

UniCycle, a school uniform recycling initiative, is also endorsed by the Ministry of Education. 

“Face-to-face school has reopened and we know it might be hard for some families to meet all the cod with this so we are grateful to our partners, Fontana and Campion College for being willing to help us stage this additional drive to collect gently used khaki uniforms, white school shirts and any school supplies person may wish to contribute through January. Just look for the big yellow containers at Fontana,” shared UniCycle Jamaica co-founder, Rhys Greenland.

“Fontana takes its responsibilities as a corporate citizen very seriously and is always happy to support family-based initiatives like Unicycle,” added Stephanie Smith, marketing manager at Fontana.

Maria Greenland, UniCycle Jamaica’s social media/community outreach officer explained, “We want to make sure all of our students can return to school as safely as possible so we have fundraised and will be able to supply an additional 100 masks being made by our partner at PROJECT HOPE through the HEART TRUST/NTA. We hope to raise more funds to be able to provide more masks. If anyone is interested in helping they can reach us on Instagram @unicyclejamaica or via email at unicyclejamaica@gmail.com.”
