DPG tuck shop success
Dubai, July 9, 2009
An Al Noor tuck shop, set up Dubai Properties Group (DPG), a member of Dubai Holding, received an overwhelming response during its three-day run at the DPG headquarters in Dubai Internet City.
Manned by the staff of Al Noor Centre for Children with Special Needs, the shop merchandised endearing art and craft works and stationary items such as t-shirts, mugs, pencil holders, and books that were designed and sculpted by the students of the centre. All proceeds from the tuck shop sale were donated to the centre.
“We are pleased to have held the Al Noor Tuck Shop at our headquarters, offering for sale many creative pieces prepared by the highly gifted students,” said Fareda Abdullah, executive director of human capital at DPG.
“The shop received great interest from DPG employees and the general public. We invite everyone to encourage the promising talent of special needs’ children from the Al Noor Centre through supporting all their future endeavours,” she added.
“Dubai Properties Group has always aimed to support the skills of our own employees along with that of the community, particularly kids,” Fareda Abdullah continued.
“Giving back to the society is a big part of our corporate responsibility campaign and we are looking forward to backing many such events and initiatives in the near future.”
Run under the auspices of the Ministry of Social Affairs, the Al Noor Centre is committed to helping special needs children from infancy to adulthood as part of its profound aim to successfully integrate them into mainstream society.
The Al Noor Tuck Shop initiative validates Dubai Properties Group’s commitment to participate in community-related activities through cementing partnerships with various educational and humanitarian entities. – TradeArabia News Service
