Ho Chi Minh City, September 14th, 2015 – Bridgestone Vietnam held the charity event “Happy New School Year” with Fleet-Point Manh Dung on 10th of September, 2015. Targeted at 150 children and students from Muoi Village, Thai Nguyen, the event was designed to help relieve the beneficiaries’ burden and establish a better environment for education.

Guided by the philosophy of Bridgestone Group’s Founder Mr Shojiro Ishibashi on serving society, Bridgestone Vietnam strives to be the role model for social responsibility, with the aim of bettering the lives of the less fortunate through charity activities.

Reaching out to the 50 children from pre-schools and 100 students from primary to secondary schools who attended the event, all participants were given plenty of meaningful gifts. Bridgestone Vietnam also awarded scholarships to 20 excellent students.

In addition, the students were presented with a “Mini Recycled Park” built by Fleet-Point Manh Dung that was made out of recycled Bridgestone tyres.
