With the lockdown still somewhat in effect, it’s coming to nearly three months since any of us from the industry received a test unit from any car maker. Instead of leaving them to collect dust, Nissan has been putting them to good use.
Aside from giving out donations, Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM)’s employees have also been distributing food and other necessities as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR). Their efforts were supported by a few Nissan Navara pick-ups including a single cab unit and the more decorated Navara Pro-4X we borrowed before the lockdown.
The trucks were used to transport and distribute daily necessities and supplies such as rice, sugar, eggs, and more.
Sales and Marketing Director, Mr Christopher Tan added, “It is very heartwarming to see colleagues coming together to support the community in its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. I would like to thank everyone for their effort, and the Company is committed to support future initiatives of such”.
Employees of ETCM were equally as enthusiastic to the aid and grateful for the opportunity to help those who’ve been less fortunate.
“I’m glad that the company has a platform for us to do something meaningful for those in need. We believe that every bit counts and we hope that this contribution can help make a difference to them. The initiative will not stop here as we strive to make a positive impact on the lives of more people in other areas,” said ETCM employee, Mr. Ridwan Hanif bin Zainal.
