Defence Headquarters, 26 JUL. ‘21 (RBDF):  As a part of the Commander Defence Force, Commodore Dr. Raymond King’s strategic plans for community relations as a socially corporate partner, members of the Supply Department took time out to donate much-needed items to the Mary Ingraham Care Centre, on Thursday, July 15, 2021.

Led by Base Supply Officer, Senior Commander Gregory Brown, the Officers and Marines showed their support for the community, as they paused from their daily routine to present the items to Ms. Joyce Roberts, owner of the care facility for the elderly, St. Vincent Road, and Faith Avenue.

Included in the items were non-perishable goods such as groceries, toiletries, and cleaning supplies. On receiving the items, Ms. Roberts expressed her gratitude to Commodore King and his Officers and Marines for thinking about them. She assured me that those items are a great help, especially during times of the current pandemic.

Coordinators of the event, Warrant Officer Linda Knowles and Petty Officer D’Andrea McKinney thanked the Supply staff for stepping up and showing full support in this venture. This latest effort is a part of fulfilling the Commander Defence Force’s intent of maintaining a meaningful and favorable relationship with the community. The Supply Department has also included numerous outreach initiatives in its calendar, which are also aligned with their daily routines.

The Royal Bahamas Defence Force is committed to “Guarding our Heritage” through opportunities as these, where nation-building plays a vital role.
