In recognition of World Tuna Day, which was observed on May 2, Facey Commodity and Brunswick donated 30 cases of Brunswick Tuna to Sophie’s Place children's home in Gordon Town, St Andrew.

The donation is intended to assist with the provision of nutritious meals for the over 20 children with disabilities who reside at Sophie’s Place.

Speaking at the handing over ceremony, Denise Byfield Dixon, Marketing Manager at Facey Commodity shared that Facey and Brunswick are always giving back to the community.

“Facey and Brunswick are always interested in supporting our communities. We felt it an opportune time during Child’s Month and on World Tuna Day to present Sophie’s Children’s Home with these products. This institution enables and encourages the children within its walls. We applaud them and the work they do, especially for children with special needs, who require extra care and attention, including a healthy diet."

In accepting the products, Christine Madden Watson, Acting Administrator at Sophie’s Place, thanked the companies for their generous donation and called on other members of the community to do the same.

“This is a great initiative and we at Sophie's Place could never express our gratitude in words. Sophie’s Place is the home of so many children with disabilities. With such a generous donation from the team at Facey and Brunswick, I hope others within the community will also remember our children. We all want a future where our children, regardless of their abilities, can hope for a brighter future, and we at Sophie's Place would appreciate the help of the community in reaching that goal."
