Following the successes of its Shop and Share initiative, the TDC Business Centre and City Drug Store (Nevis) Limited have launched its school-based outreach programme.
Customers and clients can now purchase of a wide variety of school essentials (exercise books, backpacks, paper, crayons, scissors, pencils, pens, glue, markers, folders, erasers, as well as, arts and crafts supplies, etc.) and place them in specially constructed Yellow School Buses that are conveniently parked at the Point of Sale counters in the stores.
In exchange for their contribution, they will receive a ten percent (10) shoppers’ coupon towards their next purchase as a token of appreciation to the worthwhile cause.
At the end of each month until September, the educational materials will be sorted by staff and distributed to several children across the Federation based on their need with the aim of helping them to achieve success in the classroom.
Shop and Share started in 2015 and forms part of the annual Back to School promotional drive. It complements the TDC Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility activities which are specifically geared towards encouraging academic excellence.
