Members in Kingston, St. Andrew and St. Catherine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Jamaica, responded to the call via Social Media from Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) to participate in the annual International Coastal Clean Up (ICC) Day 2018 which was held on September 15, 2018 on the Kingston Harbour, Fort Augustus Drive, Portmore.

                             

                   

Tony Parker, Jamaica’s new Mission President, was enthused about the opportunity he had to volunteer and called upon mankind to serve. He said, “We the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints being a pillar in the community we’ve come out today to perform service for our fellow-men, we hereby invite others to join us in our quest.” 

                                           
                                                

Decked in their “Helping Hands” vests, members were able to collect over 100 bags of waste – 54 Jumbo bags with plastic bottles and 58 large bags with waste (mainly Styrofoam).  Members had fun as they teamed up putting hands and hearts together to reduce the pollution caused to our marine lives and to beautify our beach.

           

The Latter-day Saints members added their voice to the Jamaica ICC Day 2018 tagline, “Nuh Dutty Up Jamaica" or in other words- let's keep Jamaica clean.
