Local contractor and hardware retailer Oliver Warren has made news again because of his generosity towards the education of children from Clark’s Town and surrounding communities.
From Jamaica Observer
Some 30 primary school students will return to school this morning with all their text books and other school supplies from a $1-million sponsorship provided by OW Construction and Hardware, located here.
Managing director of OW Construction and Hardware, the philanthropic Oliver Warren, told the Jamaica Observer that upon seeing the great need for financial support, he reached out to six primary schools in and around the sugar belt of Clark’s Town community where his business is domiciled, and committed to supply five needy students with a $15,000 grant to purchase back-to-school supplies.
In addition to the $450,000 primary school scholarships, Warren continued to provide funding for high school students in and around his native Clark’s Town community.
“I think all business operators should give back and upon seeing the need, I felt obligated to assist. I want to see more business personnel from the parish following suit,” Warren told the Observer.
Last year he made $1.5 million available to correct leaking at Hyde and Gibraltar Basic School.
