Schools benefit from mallís shopping campaign
THE Subang Parades fifth annual Shop for Your School campaign closed with a prize presentation ceremony held at the mall recently for participating schools.
The community action campaign, which was held between March 7 and May 4, allowed members of the community to help thousands of primary and secondary students receive more than RM68,000 worth of educational resources simply by doing their everyday shopping at the mall and using their shopping receipts to nominate their favourite school.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh who graced the event thanked everyone for their support.
Also present were the staff and management of Subang Parade and Hektar Group, representatives from the campaigns sponsors, and teachers from the participating schools with their respective students.
The eight-week long campaign came to an exciting end for SJK (C) Chee Wen from Subang Jaya, the winning school that received the most shopping points from shoppers. The school would get RM22,000 worth of products and 800 units of student packs.
The schools resource centre head teacher Siah Yoke Choo, 48, expressed her gratitude for the generous contribution .
I also have to thank all the parents for the support they have given to the school. They were the ones who came out and shopped for us, she said.
