    Johannesburg Expo Centre supports Nelson Mandela Day

    On behalf of their annual CSI initiative for Nelson Mandela Day, the Johannesburg Expo Centre (JEC) made a donation of 700 blankets to two schools on 18 July 2016.

    “If you can make a difference to one person, you can change a community,” says Craig Newman, Chief Executive Officer of the JEC. Newman recently celebrated his 10 year anniversary as

    CEO amongst friends, family members and colleagues. Due to his dedication to helping underprivileged communities, Newman asked his guests to bring blankets with them to the event to be donated to the children of Inkwenkwezi Primary School and Riverlea Primary School.

    “We personally collected 700 blankets but we also had an amazing team of sponsors who each donated generously towards this cause,” says Newman. “We managed to help with repairs around the schools and we could give the children food and clothing to help them through winter.”

    Over the past six years, the JEC has been involved in numerous Corporate Social Investment initiatives at Inkwenkwezi Primary School. “We are extremely grateful for the donations and constant support that we receive from the JEC and its associates,” says Thembeka Mbane, Head of Department of Inkwenkwezi Primary School. “From the clothing, to the stationary and the food that was donated, we cannot express how thankful we are to all involved.”

    The following contributions were made on behalf of the JEC’s sponsors:

    Pioneer Foods
    - 2000 loaves of bread to each school
    - Stationery for Grade R-3 for each school
    - Entertainment Truck

    “Nelson Mandela idolised children and the JEC is a highly respected organisation,” says Chantal de Koker, General Manager of IDM Cement. “Both of these factors match our modus operandi and complement our CEO’s belief that children are the most important investment of our country. Our children are our future.”
    “On behalf of Riverlea Primary School and Inkwekwezi Primary School, I would like to thank all our sponsors for their incredible contributions towards this initiative,” says Newman. “You have made a huge difference to the lives of these children and together, we have given them the tools to better their education and their futures.”
