For Jardine Distribution Inc. (JDI), being a trusted industry leader means more than just providing quality products and services. Through its corporate social responsibility efforts, JDI has, through the years, displayed good corporate citizenship by providing support for the country’s education sector.
Recently, JDI went to Typhoon Ompong-hit areas of La Union, Ilocos Sur, and Benguet to reach out to the schools destroyed by the storm and donated its elastomeric sealant, Sureseal, for the repairs of roofs.
Among the schools that JDI visited were Bayugan Elementary School in La Trinidad, Benguet; Paringao Elementary School in Bauang, La Union; Tamurong Elementary School in Candon, Ilocos Sur; and Catbangen Central School in San Fernando, La Union.
In 2013, after the record-breaking Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) pummeled Leyte and Samar, JDI was also among the first to contribute to recovery efforts by donating tents and school supplies to affected schools and students.
“Education has always been a huge part of our corporate social responsibility because we believe that educating the youth and supporting educational institutions are key to our bigger purpose of nurturing and caring for the Filipino home,” says Peachy Tiu, Assistant Vice President of JDI.
“By helping in building strong schools and strong minds, we are confident that our future is in good hands,” Tiu added.
