Giving back to the community has always been Tan Holding’s main philanthropic work and what better way to show the company’s undying gratitude by contributing to the community’s educational system.
As Tan Holdings celebrates its 40th year of doing business in Micronesia, the company gives a hefty amount of $248,000.00 worth of donations and scholarships grants to the fortunate students of the Public School System (PSS) and the Northern Marianas Trade Institute (NMTI). Tan Holdings chairman, Dr. Tan Sui Lin, presented the donations and scholarships to the school administrators and education officials.
The donations were divided equally to all sectors, giving out thousands worth of sporting equipments to public schools, student funding for school fees and training and 5000 pieces of laptop sleeves as protection for the previous laptops given by Tan Holdings.
Tan Holdings’ president Jerry Tan stated that the scholarship donation will become an annual tradition to show the company’s commitment in developing the local workforce.
The presentation of donations was witnessed by key officials in the government, including Gov. Benigno R. Fitial, CNMI Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan, Senate President Paul A. Manglona, and House Speaker Eli Cabrera.
