Stationery shops lends helping hand
Local stationery company, Samoa Stationery and Books (S.S.A.B) has given close to $9,000 in financial assistance, food and other items to the Mapuifagalele Home of the Elderly.
The donation comprised a cheque to the value of $7,000 as well as food and other items valued at $1,550 and is in response to the appeal by the aged care facility early last week for assistance.
S.S.A.B. President and Chief Executive Officer, Tofilau Fiti Leung Wai, handed over the assistance to the Little Sisters of the Poor on behalf of her management and support staff last Friday.
The C.E.O. was joined by representatives of the Manuia Girls and Boys Get Along Clubs at Mapuifagalele when the donation was handed over.
The Sister-in-Charge, Sister Maureen, thanked the S.S.A.B. C.E.O. and her management for the donation.
“Thank you Tofilau for your kind and giving heart,” she said. “Our heart is full of gratitude for the love you have all shown us. May the Lord abundantly bless S.S.A.B. and those who have donated.”
The SSAB Marketing Manager, Asomua Asia Stanley, said participating in the donation was optional for their staff.
“The donation was optional and to the extent of whatever the individual is capable of giving considering the short notice,” she said,
“We were deeply touched by the immediate response and considerable donations that came within days.”
Tofilau acknowledged her staff who contributed to the donation as well as representatives from the Manuia Girls Club and Boys Get Along Club.
“God has a loving and good heart and that is the spirit we emulate here at S.S.A.B. This is why we credit God for everything we do and for all His blessings,” she added.
“I would also like to acknowledge the enthusiasm from our individual staff members, the Manuia Girls Club and Boys Get Along Club for their good hearts, in making this donation possible in a short period of time and we wish all the elders well.”
