Paymaster Jamaica Limited, through its foundation, Jamaica's Promise, is now in the third week of its back-to-school textbook drive to assist needy parents who are still having a challenge purchasing the necessary books for their children for the coming term.

The drive will give customers who use several branches islandwide the opportunity to drop books in the boxes provided. "The books should be either new or in very good condition and cover all subject areas at the high school level," said Paymaster boss Ambassador Audrey Marks. She said the drive is part of the company's corporate social responsibility and one of the many ways that Paymaster gives back to its loyal customers.

Specially marked boxes have been placed in stores and the deadline to drop off books is August 28. Books will be sorted by August 31, and parents or students who need books can visit the following locations with their book lists to make a selection.

The drop-off and collection points are located in the following areas: Westgate, Ironshore, Mandeville, May Pen, Linstead, Sovereign Centre, Sagicor - Barbados Avenue, Sagicor - CitiBank, Lee's Food Fair, and Paymaster in Duhaney Park.
