“This initiative is the first event and is part of the company’s community-based program organized throughout the year. The program is aimed at alleviating the parents’ burden and helping them to prepare their kids for the 2015 school year. The program is part of the company’s ongoing initiative to give back to the people as well as contribute to the wellbeing of the surrounding communities,” said Teo Chee Yow, Executive Director of Country Garden Pacificview Sdn Bhd.
“For Back to School Country Garden Pacificview 2014, we decided to make it even more meaningful to the school children by letting them select their school items especially school uniforms and shoes, plus teaching them the responsibility of spending wisely based on an allocated budget,” added Teo.
As the start of the school year approaches, CGPV want to make sure the school children are ready for school with their basic necessities in place. CGPV hopes that the contribution today will bring smiles to these children’s faces.
