Pack For A Purpose
The Knutsford Court Hotel strives to find ways to give back to our community through initiatives that support, uplift and improve the lives of our Jamaican people. We avidly support the Kingston City Run Charity ½ Marathon, 10K and 5K (www.kingstoncityrun.com) which this year will again support five (5) main charities. The charities are Food for the Poor, Open Arms Drop-in Centre, and Missionaries of the Poor, Alpha Boys Home and Marie Atkins Night Shelter. The aim is to provide sustainable support for the Homeless population in Jamaica. In its four years, Kingston City Run was able to raise over J$9 million for these charities.
To that end, we are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools, homeless facilities or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
