In the spirit of New Year and in a bid to fulfil their corporate social responsibility, 7UP PEPSI International has presented gift items worth thousands of Naira to Destiny’s Child Center (DCC); a resettlement home founded by Mrs. Obioma Liyel-Imoke for the rehabilitation and reintegration of street children in the state.
Making the presentation on behalf of the company in Calabar, the Depot Manager, Mr. Emeka Onyeukwu who was accompanied by the Pepsi Representative Mrs Ada Issac said their humble donation was to support Mrs Imoke’s DCC project.
He commended her for her humanitarian gesture and promised to do more subsequently. He also said that the company would continue to partner her in her commitment to deliver quality life to this segment of the society.
Receiving the items which include branded T-shirts, footballs, dozens of exercise books and packets of pens on behalf of Mrs Imoke, the Executive Director POWER Mrs. Tammie Kammonke thanked the company for their kind gesture and commended them for sustaining a long history of partnership with POWER as well as being alive to their corporate social responsibility.
She used the opportunity to call on other well-meaning citizens and corporate entities to emulate the gesture of 7up-Pepsi and donate to POWER projects to enable it continue its good works.
She stated that all POWER events held last year were deliberately designed towards mobilizing funds to sustain POWER programs.
She however promised that the NGO will continue to give mileage through publicity to all who identify with it.
