Imperial Pacific CSR’s ‘A 2nd Time Around’ Project

(Press Release) — The Corporate Social Responsibility program of Imperial Pacific International has launched “A 2nd Time Around,” an initiative supporting various programs that help individuals served by the CNMI Office of Substance Abuse and Rehabilitation.

This initiative is part of IPI-CSR’s partnership with the CNMI Drug Court which began last year.

The Office of Substance Abuse and Rehabilitation operates the HOPE Recovery Center. One of its immediate needs is clothing for participants especially when they need to attend scheduled court appearances and/or interviews.

IPI-CSR’s “A 2nd Time Around” donated clothes for the center participants, including long- and short-sleeve shirts, ties, trousers, belts, shoes, skirts and blouses.

Yvette Sablan, special assistant for substance abuse and rehabilitation, received the donations on behalf of the HOPE Recovery Center.

According to IPI-CSR Senior Director Geri DelaCruz, the project is another creative way to promote the culture of civic engagement and involvement.

“We are a small community and we would love to see everyone be given a second chance,” she said. “We have seen it before. There are many who were given a second chance and are now making a world of difference.”
