Together We Packed

On August 5 in the afternoon, while most of the Filipinos were watching the burial of the late Cory Aquino, the SICO alumni and current volunteers gathered together to pack pens and pencils for the distribution on August 9.

Thanks to all our donors!

Each student will get a pack of 4 pens or pencils. Markers and nice writing materials were reserved as prizes for the games. Some pencils and the used bags and pencil cases will be sent to Apu Palamguwan Cultural Education Center, a small school in Bendum, Malaybalay, Bukidnon through Cecil, a Jesuit volunteer alumna of the said school.

Here are some more pictures we took:

Working hands. Don't you think we lacked organization? :)

The Batch 29 alumni volunteers: Kikit in yellow shirt, Mabelle in stripes, Mailah in lavander and JP in orange polo shirt.

The man with a backpack is Sir Ian, the SICO director. The beautiful lady standing is Becky, JP's colleague at SGV. She was kind enough to spend a few hours with us.

Later in the afternoon, Batch 39 volunteers helped us.
Yeah, ten years ago, we were in their shoes.

Here's another picture with the Batch 39 volunteers. We couldn't have finished the task on time without their help.

Here's another one. They will also attend the distribution on August 9 to facilitate games.
