New Bags Bring Smiles for Students in China
Categories: Boots On The Ground: Service Stories, Making Our Difference: TBL CSR
Last October, employees at Stella Group, a longtime Timberland factory partner, organized a schoolbag donation at the Long Xiang primary school in Qingyuan City, Guangdong province, China. The school, which is located in a remote, mountainous area, serves more than 250 students between preschool and grade 6. There are just ten teachers.
For the school bag donation, Stella volunteers contacted the school to determine how many students in each grade, and the number of boys and girls. Then, they purchased school bags and study tools, including pens and pencils, erasers, notebooks, painting books and stationery cases. Once the supplies were packaged in each new schoolbag (pink for the girls and blue for the boys), the volunteers delivered and distributed at the Long Xiang school.
The students were all so happy to receive these colorful new schoolbags full of study tools!
