Tapulanga Foundation once again held its annual Christmas Gift Giving program to help not just their scholars, but also neighboring schools and communities who needed a lift in their Christmas spirit this holiday season amidst the continuing pandemic.
Last December 13, 2021, TF was able to share their blessings to a total of 159 families: 134 students and 10 teachers of Jose D. Cuaycong Elementary School, 5 tricycle drivers and 10 sakada farmers.
The TF team also visited the communities of Sitio Roma, a fishing village, and Sitio Mambag-id and distributed Christmas gifts packs to a total of 220 families.
It was such a heartwarming experience seeing big smiles in their faces as they received the simple gifts Tapulanga Foundation prepared for them.
On the following day, 345 families of local vendors, pedicab and tricycle drivers received their Christmas gift package at the Tapulanga office. The TF staff also visited Hacienda Manalo 5 and Hacienda Makina, sugarcane farm communities, and was able to distribute gift packs to 105 families.
On the third and fourth day of the one-week-long program, 630 scholars from Preschool to College received their Christmas gift packs at St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City court. TF also gave gift packs plus ham to 75 teachers, staff and volunteers of the school.
On December 23, 130 families of Hacienda Tinihaban and Hacienda Lonoy received gift packs as well.
The gift packs included 5 kilos of rice, spaghetti sauce and noodles and a box of chocolates. The scholars also received additional gift items, e.g. toys for the younger ones and cap/hair brush and one-week cellphone data load for the older kids.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH to all the GENEROUS donors who supported the Christmas Gift Giving 2021 program of Tapulanga Foundation. A total of 1,664 families had a “special” Christmas because of YOU!
TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!
