As the Royal Bahamas Defence Force continues to enforce the Commander Defence Force, Commodore Raymond King’s strategic objective of strengthening relationships with stakeholders and the community at large as a socially corporate citizen, the members of RBDF Entry 41 Woman Entry 13 recently donated grocery items to the Urban Renewal Center, St. James Road.
In commemoration of celebrating 16 years of service to the country the combined male, and female squad decided that it was only fitting that they do a charitable project in an inner-city community.
On Tuesday, May 4th, 2021, the Officers and Marines donated cases of breakfast items which included: tuna, mackerel, corned beef, yellow grits, water, disposable lid containers, and boxes of male clothing. Receiving the grocery items were the organization’s Supervisor, Ms. Daphne Bannister, Ms. Tanya Gibson, who serves as Secretary and Ms. Samantha Seymour, who all expressed their appreciation for the donated items.
Led by Sub Lieutenant Miska Clarke, members of the squad had intended to conduct a breakfast giveaway, but due to the emergency orders, it was agreed upon to make a bulk donation of breakfast items. The center seeks to provide breakfast a few days a week for residents of the Farm Road community who are in need.
The combined squad of thirty-nine members observed sixteen years as a unit, after enlisting on February 28, 2005, and together they continue to make significant contributions to the organization.
Commodore Raymond King, along with the Officers and Marines of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force congratulate Entry 41 Woman Entry 13 on their achievement and extend Bravo Zulu to them as they continue to give back to the community while serving their country. The Royal Bahamas Defence Force remains committed to strengthening Community Relations while guarding our heritage.
