“There are many ways to measure a company’s success. However, a truly successful company is one that finds a way to return some of its rewards to the communities in which it operates. We believe a company cannot consider itself truly successful unless it makes an effort to give back. Apparel Group strongly believes that as a large organization we can make a difference in several ways such as donating financially to needy causes; helping protect in the environment and make the society we live in a better place for our stakeholders through various activities and campaigns. It is my hope that we can set an example to other companies by demonstrating that these contributions to the society will actually create awareness to save our planet, where we can take great pride. We believe that our companionate actions will make the world a better place for future generations.”
