SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — June 5, 2014— Dental Select and its top insurance agency executives, recently fulfilled a philanthropic opportunity that contributed more than $10,000 in financial support, school supply kits and sports equipment to Wai District School students located in Fiji.
The plight of the Fijian school was realized during a personal trip to the country by Dental Select’s President & CEO, Brent Williams. The opportunity to donate then became a reality during a meeting between Dental Select and its top partnering agency executives. Mr. Williams stated that, “The opportunity to help these children receive the funds and desperately needed educational support was a privilege.”
“We were thrilled to find that so many of our partners were willing to support and fund this project and that it will make such a positive impact on the future of this Fijian community.”
The Fiji Wai District School currently educates 115 students ranging from Kindergarten through eighth grade. The school also houses many of the students during the school week due to distance and lack of regulated ground transportation.
Items presented to the school included a $10,000 cash donation, various sports equipment, and school kits, which included essential items such as notebooks, pencils, erasers, rulers, and scissors.
