217 students will receive new school supplies

ORANJESTAD - Aruba Airport Authority N.V.’s (AAA) “Wings of Hope” proudly donated a total of 217 school supplies and 160 uniform vouchers to the Department of Social Affairs (DSZ) on Tuesday August 25th, 2020.

As part of a community support project by AAA on June 1st, 2020 with the purpose to assist and support around 70 families who are in great need, AAA also supports 217 students by donating their Back-To-School supplies.

AAA has partnered up with the Department of Social Affairs (DSZ) to provide a total of 217 students who are attending different school grades including kindergarten, elementary school and high school with their school supplies and uniform vouchers. Each student will receive a brand-new backpack or briefcase and school materials which are required for their specific school grade.  Additionally, 160 students will also receive a uniform voucher to be able to pick-up their uniforms at a designated uniform company.

Despite the devastating effects of COVID19, AAA still strongly believes that it is AAA’s duty and responsibility to help those who are currently struggling and have been hit the hardest by this crisis and this includes kids as well.  

During the handover of the school supplies and uniform vouchers to DSZ, AAA’s CEO Mr. Joost Meijs expressed his utmost gratitude towards DSZ for their continuous efforts and dedication to the community of Aruba and for making this possible together with “Wings of Hope”. “It is an honor for us to be able to assist where we can despite the circumstances and hopefully other organizations can do the same. Together we will make sure we all get back on our feet” said Mr. Joost Meijs.
