PEP Stores Donates over N20 million Items to Orphanages

In line with its Corporate Social Responsibility thrust, PEP Stores Nigeria, a multinational retail company that specializes in clothing, home wears, footwears, as well as other fast moving consumer goods, reached out to three orphanages – Beth Torry Home for the mentally handicapped, Little Saint Orphanage and Hearth of Gold Hospice – by renovating their buildings and donating items worth over 20 million naira.

The company spent about N1.5Million in fixing doors and furniture at Little Saint branches in Egbeda, Ogudu and Abole and Heart of Gold in Surulere while it donated items (Clothing & Foot wear) valued at about N11.5 Million to Little Saints Orphanage, Lagos and another N6.8 Million worth of items to Beth Torry Home for the mentally handicapped.

According to Mr. Deon Conradie, general manager, PEP Stores Nigeria, said the donations to the orphanages and the renovations was in line with the company’s strong belief in giving back to the society in which it operates as a socially responsible corporate citizen. “This Corporate Social Responsibility initiative is part of our brand’s DNA. PEP believes in giving back to the communities it serves and each PEP region is empowered to give back to the communities at a local level,” he said.

He also revealed that the renovation of the three orphanages was carried out at a value of about N1.5 million. “To achieve this, we worked in partnership with Cussun Generators to pool our limited resources together to fix the roofs of some of the homes and we have also started a vegetable growing programme and provide Physiotherapy visits to these homes,” he added.
