Plymouth’s Primera Technology Raises Money for Jamaican Child Care Center
Plymouth-based Primera Technology has launched an effort to help a child care facility in Jamaica with some much-needed repairs.
“We just felt that this was a really important contribution to helping the local, most vulnerable people in Jamaica, have a little bit better life while they’re deciding what’s going to happen with them,” said Mark Strobel, vice president of sales & marketing for Primera Technology.
Primera Technology recently launched a fundraising campaign on GoFundMe to help repair the roof of Blossom Gardens child care facility in Jamaica.
The building houses children who have been separated from their parents. The roof experiences multiple leaks during Jamaica’s rainy season.
Primera has operated an assembly plant in Jamaica for nearly three decades, but now the company is looking to help the country in other ways beyond employment.
“We intend to do more with this facility,” Strobel said. “They are always in need of clothing and shoes and this type of thing. So after this project is done, we hope to do more with them.”
The roof repair has a price tag of $14,000. Primera is looking to raise $7,000, and will match all of the funds donated to the campaign.
