Canon Organizes its 3rd year Winter Charity Campaign to Spread Warmth
by donating 1,000 Blankets to Children in Need
at 5 Rural Schools in Kanchanaburi
Canon Marketing (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (Canon), a global leader in digital imaging solutions, organized its third edition of the Canon Winter Charity campaign to spread warmth to children in need during the cold season. A total of 1,000 blankets were donated to 5 rural schools in Kanchanaburi, namely Baan Laem Thong School in Dan Makham Tia District, Sa Kloi Samakkhi Tham School, Baan Nhong Ehen School, Baan Nhong Nam Khun School and Baan Huay Nam Jone School in Tha Muang District. School supplies and children’s books, donated by Canon employees, were also handed over to the schools.
Mr. Phongthep Prasertvoranan, Director of Corporate Communications, Canon Marketing (Thailand) Co., Ltd., said, “The western border province of Kanchanaburi covers vast forests with mountainous terrains bordering Myanmar. In winter, people in the areas usually suffer from extremely cold and dry weather. Several schools in the secluded areas still face a shortage of necessary school supplies. As part of our CSR activity, we hope that the donated blankets can provide much-needed warmth for these children living in hard-to-reach areas during the upcoming winter while the school supplies can help them learn and develop new skills.”
