Shana S helps Portland families
US-based, Jamaica-born singjay Shana S has reached out to several families living in Portland to provide cash to purchase much-needed grocery items as COVID-19 has forced millions into lockdown, and possibly unemployment.
"We all know how frustrating it is to be in a position where our families or neighbours are in need and we can't help them. COVID-19 has now made that situation frustratingly impossible for some families with the stay-at-home order. It feels great to be a part of a good deed that's helping to ease some of the burden placed on families," Shana S said.
With the help of friends, Shana S was able to drop off envelopes with $13,000 cash to purchase groceries for families in Portland.
"I got a donation from one of my high -school friends, who was inspired by what I was doing and wanted to help. So together we helped these families, including a woman who has been housebound and unable to move for years. We plan to do more. If just one person feels less lonely or isolated when faced with this pandemic, then I'll feel better. Coronavirus is scary. Let's make kindness go viral. Get involved, Jamaica, help your neighbours," she said.
