KFC continues to reach out to the communities it serves every day. Since the initiation of this program in 2014, KFC’s Project Book Bag platform provides a quality school bag filled back to school necessities such as exercise books, pencils, water bottle, lunch bag and other stationary items to Primary Schools students. Project Book Bag is a part of KFC’s long term corporate commitment to give back to the communities with a goal of providing a school bag to all Primary School students in Dominica. Every year 2-3 schools are selected to be the beneficiaries of these essential school items which aim is to ensure that the students are bestowed with the necessary stationery items needed to start the school year.
This year the students from the Campbell, Mahaut and Warner Primary Schools are recipients of the bags containing some of the key school items needed for the school year. KFC Restaurant General Manager, Leandra Henderson, said: “we at KFC are simply delighted to be able to make this contribution towards the learning and cultivation of our future leaders, doctors, nurses, businessmen and women and future employees of KFC”. She encouraged the students to learn as “education is the cornerstone of our society and the only way they the students can have a better future for themselves, their families and make a meaningful contribution to the growth and development of the country”.
The principal of the Warner Primary School, Mr. Bertrand, expressed his gratitude “on behalf of the students, teachers and parents of the school by conveying heartfelt thanks to KFC for such a timely and thoughtful donation of bags and school supplies to all the students at the school. KFC is showing good corporate citizenship by investing in the vibrant minds present at the Warner Primary School. The students were highly elated and showed such great excitement for the gifts. We look forward to your continued partnership in the future in the interest of education at Warner Primary. Thank you, KFC, for bringing such joy to our students.”
