On September 1, Popcaan will host a ‘Back to School’ treat in the 3West community of Portmore, St Catherine. The treat will include school item giveaways, fun rides and games for children and entertainment by popular artists.
Popcaan says, “This is my small way of giving back to my community, to help the parents with some of the expenses by giving school bags and books and also to give the children some fun before the serious school work starts.” That’s so nice!
