International Pioneers School Distributes Free Lunch Boxes
to Support the Local Community
Bangkok, Thailand, 01 May 2020: International Pioneers School has initiated giving
away lunch boxes containing fresh and healthy food and a bottle of water to the local
community for two weeks, starting the 27th of April.
On the first day of distribution, the food prepared by the school was finished within a
matter of 20 minutes from the time of the launch. IPS decided to increase the quantity
for the next day, which was also over very quickly. The school then doubled the number
of boxes to meet the demand from the third day onwards.
Joining the school in our responsible social endeavor, our socially-inclined Student
Representative Council (SRC) and many of our high school students also decided to
lend a hand to support this noble program by contributing funds that they have worked
hard to gather during the course of their academic year. Throughout the school year, our
students raise funds through various in-school activities to help and support the
underprivileged of our society. Unfortunately, this year the students were unable to use
the funds due to Covid-19. We have therefore extended the period of food distribution
by three additional days (11th to 13th of May), two days of which will be sponsored by
Year 12 and 13 students as part of their Annual Community Service Activity and the
remaining day by the School Representative Council (SRC).
During this extraordinary time, the world has come to a standstill due to an invisible
enemy, leading to some of our fellow members of the community losing their jobs or
face financial difficulties, and in some cases struggling to meet basic necessities. IPS
committed to fully assisting our community, because together, we believe we can
overcome these unprecedented times and come out stronger.
