Is About Doing
At Interlinc Communications, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), is at the cornerstone of what we do, and is one of our guiding philosophies. Since our inception, our CSR initiatives have been geared towards helping the most vulnerable in the local communities in which we operate. For every member of our team, being a responsible corporate citizen isn’t just good business, it’s the right thing to do!
Since 1994, we have worked with recognized charities and non-profit organizations, including the Jamaica Cancer Society, Communities Unlocked, Jamaica AIDS Support for Life among countless others in helping to make a positive and meaningful impact. Through own Technology Support Initiative (TSI) started in 1999, we have helped numerous micro and small enterprises access affordable critical technology such as computers, websites & other digital services, in the form of subsidies or sponsorship support.
Our CSR initiatives are focused on strengthening local communities and those at risk, by leading, supporting and partnering with organizations whose programmes target areas in education, healthcare, entrepreneurship, youth and culture.
Our CSR Focus Areas Include: Education | Entrepreneurship | Healthcare | Youth | Culture & Community

Christmas Care Packages:
The Christmas holidays are normally a time for joy and happiness, but for many Jamaican families it can be financially and emotionally stressful. This year, the Agency plans to distribute care packages of essential groceries to 25 families across the island. These care packages will be donated to a registered Jamaican charity with experience & the logistics to the distribution. We also invite members of the public to join us with this initiative.
You can donate canned goods, non-perishable foods, items of clothing (new or lightly used), toys and other gifts by dropping them directly to the Salvation Army or by emailing our offices, so we can arrange collection.
