In the last week of March, Triple J Saipan Inc. donated a total of $30,000 to 13 different schools throughout Saipan.

These multiple donations will be used for educational programs, maintenance, upkeep, upgrades as well as educational supplies and other necessary items.

These funds were donated under the Education Tax Credit Program, which has been active in the CNMI since 1997.

Several Triple J affiliated companies were a part of the donation, including Triple J Motors Saipan, Hertz, Saipan Comfort Homes, Sandy Beach Homes, and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

“We were so excited to be able to donate a substantial amount to our island’s schools to help with anything they need. The future of Saipan is in our education system; it’s with our youth. We must provide them adequate and equipped learning centers to help them grow, thrive and succeed here in the CNMI. With Saipan’s explosive growth, there is nothing more important than education,” said Robert H. Jones, chairman and CEO of Triple J.

Agnes McPhetres, NMTI CEO, said, “We can now start on our new hotel, hospitality and restaurant management training facility! Our enrollment numbers are climbing and we need to keep up with the latest technologies and training solutions to give our youth a cutting-edge education.”

Triple J opened two, brand-new restaurants in 2016 and broke ground on an apartment complex that was finished in less than a year.

“We have a stake in helping our CNMI youth get the best education they can get. We need, and want them to join us in our ever-growing corporate family,” said Tracy Guerrero, Triple J Saipan’s corporate controller. “We need to start now and provide additional resources and promote higher education here, as well as encourage our skilled local workforce to stay on island and work at local businesses. Our opportunities and jobs continue to grow here in the CNMI.”

The schools that received donations are Hopwood Jr. High, Whispering Palms, Saipan Community School, Mt. Carmel School, San Vicente Elementary School, Northern Marianas Trades Institute, Garapan Elementary School, William S. Reyes Elementary, Marianas High School and Northern Marianas College.

Triple J Enterprises Inc. has served the island communities for over three decades. The Triple J group of companies has several major operations, which include the Triple J Auto Group, which represents Hyundai, Mitsubishi and Mazda; Triple J Rentals, the licensee for Hertz Rent-A-Car in Guam, Saipan and Palau; Five Star Wholesale Foods, the distributor of high-quality food items including Certified Angus Beef, Hawaii Water, and Tyson food products; and, Triple J Restaurant Group which owns and operates Outback Steakhouse in Guam, and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Surf Club, Tony Roma’s, Capricciosa and Truong’s Vietnamese Restaurant on Saipan.
