Santo Domingo.– The multinational Gildan announced the delivery of a donation of RD$2.4 million in favor of the six schools that the company sponsors in the municipality of Guerra, as a result of the proceeds during the fifth edition of its social responsibility initiative, Gildan Glow Run.
More than 2,400 people participated in the 5-kilometer run/walk, including collaborators, family members, community groups and strategic partners, who came together to contribute to the education of hundreds of low-income children
The Arcadia Reyes, Cleotilde Castillo, Apolinar Concepción, Tomás Hernández Franco, Basilio Frías and Eugenio de Jesús Marcano polytechnic schools are the beneficiary educational centers that Gildan will help to meet some of the priority needs they present.
Upon knowing the amount of the contribution, the directors of the schools expressed their joy since with this extraordinary contribution they will be able to improve the conditions of their schools, and they thanked the company that offers them constant support to better develop their mission.
In addition to collaborating with a good cause, the Gildan Glow Run is an event that promotes an active life, integration among colleagues and healthy entertainment, this year featuring a humorous presentation by Liondy Ozoria and his pet Ñeñeco, as well as a Zumba show by the renowned Carlos Torres, while the animation was made by Raeldo López.
