PINELANDS, ST MICHAEL residents, particularly those involved in football, have staged a collection drive for Dominica.
The eastern Caribbean country was devastated by Tropical Storm Erika in August.
Organiser Fernando Best said the community which has often been on the receiving end wanted to give back.
He organised a football tournament at which a number of items were collected included food, toiletries and football gear.
They were handed over to Member of Parliament for the St Michael South East constituency Santia Bradshaw at the Parkinson Resource Centre today. (LK)
