08 Mar, 2017 – Maica Laminates Sdn Bhd had sponsored 4 writing tables and 8 shoe racks to St Nicholas’ Home in Penang with the items being delivered to the home yesterday morning at 11:00am. This CSR programme sees the sponsorship of Maica’s premium custom print product, maiConcept, for the table tops and the racks of the shoerack, in collaboration with Shini Furniture & Decoration for the workmanship and Shini’s customer, Mr Goh (who prefers to be anonymous but allows the publication of his surname only for reference) for the sponsorship of the wood materials for the table’s legs and shoe racks’ wooden support beams.
St Nicholas’ Home Penang is a non-profit, non government organisation specifically catering to the needs of the blind and visually impaired. They have noble visions of a nation “that is free of barriers, where blind & visually impaired persons are not discriminated against; to have the same rights and responsibilities, share equal opportunities & the quality of life that is available to their sighted peers”. They have good facilities to provide education training and employment opportunities, and they accept donations in cash and in kind. Each year, they will also have a food fair to raise funds for their home.
The tables and shoe racks are intended for their guest rooms. The rooms are tidy and clean. Maica’s initiative to use maiConcept for the sponsorship of these tables and shoe racks are based on the considerations that the product is anti-microbial, hence it helps to ensure minimal maintenance of the table tops and shoe racks.
We will be doing this again. It feels good to be able to help. This is our 2nd maiCSR programme, and our first was with House of Hope, Penang.
