New store openings benefit local communities

by Tania Wannenburg

With a focus on building and renovating schools in and around the communities in which they operate, Builders is proud to invest in the schools of our future leaders.
For each of its 14 new stores that opened last year, Builders assisted a school or charity in the surrounding communities with renovation or repair needs, investing almost R200 000 in store opening initiatives.

Sefikeng Primary School, a “no-fee” primary school at Leeukop Prison, previously received a veggie tunnel from Builders in 2012 and has been supplementing the starch provided by the Department of Education with vegetables grown from the tunnel. As part of the Builders Rivonia store opening, R5 000 went towards purchasing more seeds as well as any additional products they might need to sustain the tunnel.

With the opening of Builders Superstore Commercia, Mayibuye Primary School received a donation of 120 desks and chairs for the Grade R learners who previously had to sit on the floor.

Protea Glen Secondary School in Protea Glen and Ilinge Secondary School in Vosloorus each received a donation of R50 000 as part of the SuperStore openings that took place in November 2014. The donations were used to renovate and install much-needed structures for the schools.

With the opening of Builders SuperStore Cosmo City, another R50 000 was donated to Cosmo City West Primary School to be used as part of their kitchen renovation. As a “no-fee” school, the challenge is to provide learners from Grade R up to Grade 7 with a nutritious meal in a kitchen that is hygienic and fully functional.
