AARON HUMES Reporting: Co-promoters of the “Blazin’ Reggae Vibes” Concert held on March 9   Dion “Ras” Pitter, the noted stevedore and trade union activist, and KREM Radio DJ Anthony Grant, today gave donations to two local schools made with the proceeds of the recent event.

Ebenezer Methodist Primary School’s feeding program received a sack of rice, beans and a crate of Quality Poultry Products chicken.

Their vice-principal, Paulette Mossiah, says it sustains a program which feeds 75 children on a daily basis.

The other donation was to the Timmy Stamp after-school program of 10 Mennonite-made desktop chairs.

Stamp’s program has four locations on Southside and needs finance to help pay its instructors, but he is grateful for this donation.

As for Pitter, he told us that the presenters of the concert will continue to look around for the most deserving causes to sponsor.

The next concert is scheduled for April 27.
