The management of the Takoradi Flour Mill (TFM), days to the National Sanitation day exercise, donated tools to the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly (STMA).
The tools, which included 300 shovels, 50 disposable nose masks, wellington boots, and rakes among others, were estimated to cost GH¢10,000.
The management of TFM says it donated the tools as part of its social responsibility programme to contribute to the growth of Sekondi-Takoradi.
The Office Manager, Mr. Percy Botchway, who presented the tools to management of the STMA, said his company believed that cleanliness was next to godliness, hence, the donation ahead of the sanitation exercise.
He said the company, having received an SOS from the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) asking the company to assist them with tools to enable the Assembly conduct a successful sanitation exercise, could not have sat unconcerned, hence the donation.
Office Manager Percy Botchway expressed the hope that the donated tools would go a long way to help in the National Sanitation Day exercise.
Receiving the tools, the Coordinating Director of the STMA, Alhaji Asuru Ishak, expressed the heartfelt appreciation of the assembly.
According to the Coordinating Director, the timely arrival of the tools went to underscore the fact that TFM attaches importance to the sanitation day exercise.
This is because, it was not long ago that the STMA put in a request to the company to assist it with tools for the exercise.
He said STMA was pleased with the company’s prompt response in providing the equipment.
He expressed the hope that other companies would emulate the gesture of the TFM, and do same. He said it was the collective responsibility of other companies which had not shown up to follow the path of the TFM and do same.
