By BBN Staff: Today, the Eastern Division Region One police formation donated a weed eater to 10 youths from the Saint Martin’s de Porres area in Belize city.
The purpose of the donation is to assist the young men in becoming entrepreneurs.
Commander of the region, Sr. Supt. Howell Gillett explained that the young men are being given an opportunity to earn their money through chopping yards rather than “through unlawful means.”
The conditions of the donation include that the young men present the machine for inspection every Friday and for every yard they chop, $2.00 must be saved.
The savings of the $2 will be used to purchase another weed eater for a different neighborhood.
Gillett thanked Phillip Jones of City Shuttle for assisting the police and community with the donation.
