JMI-Edison donates supplies for schoolchildren
JMI-Edison recently donated more than $2,000 worth of school supplies to help provide for Guam’s schoolchildren most in need.
“Alongside the Salvation Army, we believe that education is one of the best chances that people, especially children, have to break the cycle of poverty. When we were approached about this need, we immediately reached out to National Office Supply to put together supplies that will best suit the needs of our schoolchildren,” said John Ilao, vice president of JMI-Edison.
‘We’re very happy to help’
“We know through the calls and messages that the Salvation Army receives daily that the need is strong,” said Ivee Ilao, project engineer at JMI-Edison. “We’re very happy to help the children of Guam.”
Emelio Uy, president of National Office Supply, said the supply store is more than happy to be involved in programs that benefit the Salvation Army and its work in Guam.
The members and leadership of the Salvation Army can’t wait to see the supplies put to use by Guam’s young students, said Capt. Tom Stambaugh, commander of the Salvation Army Guam Corps.
“We are grateful for people in the business community like John Ilao of JMI-Edison and Emelio Uy of National Office Supply, who helped by giving significant donations and starting the school supply drive with a donation of 13 cases of paper and notebooks. Their generosity will help put a smile on the faces of 200 school kids,” Capt. Stambaugh said.
