Peugeot spreads the love
If December is the month to be jolly, January is the month to lick financial wounds and face the reality of a new year. For many, that means finding money for school books and stationery…
Peugeot South Africa has made this task little easier for the dedicated caregivers at Acres of Love – which has a 15-year legacy of caring for orphaned and abandoned children – by donating R20 000 worth of back-to-school goodies to the charity. This means a number of lucky boys and girls will start their school year with new pens, pencils and books, safely stashed in a backpack which hasn’t been used before.
Says Peugeot South Africa’s managing director Francis Harnie: “Any parent is well aware of what it costs to get a single child school-ready and we’re pleased to be able to make a small contribution to the welfare of the under-privileged in this way. Education is key to the future of this country, and we can’t think of a better investment we could make.”
