On December 5th, 2021 the members of the Jamaican American Connection, Inc. through a grant from the Yale Community Grant was able to give PPE, sanitary products, hats, scarves, gloves, socks, gift cards and meal coupons to over 150 members of our community. We partnered with followed businesses in our community ConnCat Ricky D's Rib Shack Fussy Coffee Hair's Kay Beauty Salon We had volunteers from the SCSU Caribbean Student Association Career High School Deca Club hot chocolate donated and delivered to the volunteers by Bloom in Westville. This initiative was truly a community event.

The Jamaican American Connection, Inc. fosters, promote and support positive values within our community & beyond. So it comes as no surprise that amidst the Coronavirus epidemic members joined forces to serve our community during a time of great need. Yesterday, over 200 residents of the Greater New Haven community were served authentic Jamaican cuisine. The day was overcast but the air was filled with hope, gratitude, warmth and irie vibes while adhering to social distancing & crowd avoidance. Sincere gratitude to our compassionate chefs & servers of Island Spice who continue to provide needed resources to help us live our mission of service.

Special recognition to our volunteers:
