THE Spanish Town High School was today given a major boost in its efforts to reach out to students in the troubled capital city with the presentation of school supplies from an international humanitarian aid organisation and Food For the Poor.

"The organisation Matthew 25: Ministries is in the island on an islandwide initiative to reach out to the country's most needy," said Wendell Mettey, president of the ministry.

Mettey said more than 40,000 books will be donated from the organisation to schools across the island.

Vice Principal Leopold Porter welcomed the donation.

"We are thankful for the contribution and we believe this will go a far way," said Porter.
