Flipping through the paper just now, wanted to take a minute to salute former Wadadli Pen donor/patron (2010, 2005) Harper’s Office Depot for their ‘Back to School’ promotion which saw store credit extended to several schools on island, namely:
St. John’s Catholic
Antigua Girls High School
St. Joseph’s Academy
Antigua Grammar School
Clare Hall Secondary
Foundation Mixed (i.e. Ms. Davis School)
Christ the King High School
We love to see businesses giving back as we believe strongly here at Wadadli Pen that an investment in youth and community is an investment in our future. So, Harper’s, look out for us again the future.
