Donation to RBPF Fire Services Unit

The Bahamas Agriculture & Marine Science Institute was thrilled to support The Royal Bahamas Police Force Fire Services in its recent Community Outreach effort to assist persons who need support as a result of challenging circumstances. Members of the Fire Services unit conducted a food and clothing giveaway on Hospital Lane, off Meadows Street earlier this week with more than 200 persons coming out.

"The BAMSI staff was excited to make this donation," Mr Young said. "When the request was sent out, the staff responded enthusiastically because we know how important it is to reach into the community and make a positive difference. We're happy to be able to support the Royal Bahamas Police Force Fire Service Community Outreach and we look forward to being able to partner with you for future initiatives."

The donation by BAMSI staff members was made as part of the Institute's larger Give Back Programme which typically involves providing fresh produce for those in need. For the Fire Services initiative however, the executive team, managers, supervisors and staff members all came together to give clothing, canned and dry goods, toiletries and other necessities.

Sergeant Daniel Rahming of the RBPF, said the turnout to the event, held earlier this week, was a success with over two hundred persons in attendance. "We also took the time out to deliver bags with food items to the old and handicap persons within the community." 

According to Sgt. Rahming, the objective of the Community Outreach is to help the less fortunate, particularly those who live in more challenging neighbourhoods – areas where there is often a huge cry for help. The idea, he said, is to "change the narrative"; to set an example for other corporate entities, businesses and the public, that even the smallest gift can make a difference in someone's life. "Being able to give food, to give something to the community, hopefully it helps to connect you to those persons and shows that we care."
