AS part of efforts to ensure learning for students is made easier, Tropical Shipping, on November 30, made monetary donations to Kingston Secondary School and St. John’s College.

In a press release, the shipping and logistics firm, which has its headquarters in Florida, said that donations will benefit both students and staff. Kingston Secondary has already indicated that the donation will be used to purchase a printer/photocopier for the school. After collecting the donation, a teacher of St. John’s College said it will be used to purchase whatever the school needs.

According to the release, country manager, Glenis Hodge, handed over the donations to the schools during a simple ceremony at the Water Street office.

“It is expected that the donation contributes to a comfortable, conducive, and rewarding learning experience for the children and teachers of the schools, to make a positive impact in the community,” it added.

In her comments, Hodge said: “As a corporate citizen, we are happy to be partnering with the two schools to support their objectives, goals, and missions. It is our hope that this donation will support the existing goals of ensuring a comfortable and rewarding learning experience for the children and in the big picture we hope that it will make a positive impact in the community.”

Hodge further added that Tropical Shipping’s community donation programme focuses on youth and educational initiatives that are impactful, unique, and sustainable.

According to the release, the company has more than 50 years of experience moving freight to and from the US, Canada, the Caribbean, Guyana, and Suriname.

Tropical Shipping has been serving Guyana for more than 25 years, with weekly Thursday sailings from Florida to Guyana. Less than container loads, full container loads for refrigerated and dry cargo, breakbulk and marine insurance, are among the services the company offers.
