Corporate Citizenship

Sangster's has been a generous benefactor to several entities, not only can this be attested to by the many people who passed through the doors of Sangster's Book Stores and whom the company has helped to obtain books so that they could improve themselves educationally but the Jamaica Library Service (JLS) in 1976 to be awarded a first year student in the undergraduate programme of the UWI. The Scholarship is now known as the Hector Wynter Memorial Scholarship.

The Schools Challenge Quiz, yet another educational cause has been the recipient of Sangster's bounty. Winning participants on the programme have received books donated by Sangster's Book Stores Limited. Sangster's has also been a sponsor of the National Art in Preparatory Schools competition an annual event organized by the Institute of Jamaica. This sees us providing prizes of Gift Vouchers and Crayola products to winning participants.

The Sangster's family also actively works with schools within our community to build access to resource material for teachers and students. The teams participate in Reading Fairs, Health & Wellness Expos as well as setting up book displays for any number of school events.

By far our most prestigious and popular sponsorship has been The Gleaner National Spelling Bee Competition. Sangster's Book Stores sponsors books to ALL participants in the competition as well prizes to the Winners.

We work extensively with schools from Early Childhood to Secondary level providing sponsorships for a range of events
from Reading Competitions, School Spelling Bees to Top Performers at Prize Giving and Graduations.

This is in addition to our numerous donations to school libraries: Campion College, St. Jude's Primary, Dupont Primary to name a few.
