Corporate Social Responsibility

Philosophy:  

“Mayberry is committed to giving back to our community. We are especially focused on youth. We reach out to them by helping to build capacity in the key areas of Health, Education, Environment, Youth and Community Development as well as Financial Literacy.

We are passionate about our natural environment and we support capacity building to preserve and enhance our natural environment which we believe is Jamaica’s most valuable resource.

We have outreach programs with the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF). We believe that the security of each and every Jamaican is the most important contributor to improving the quality of life in our island home”.

– Christopher Berry, Executive Chairman
