supplies with backpacks that were distributed to the kindergarten
and Grade I pupils in the different barangays of the Municipalities
of Dolores, San Policarpo and Arteche, all of Eastern Samar. About
3,300 children were benefited from the said activity.
The said gift giving
activity recognizes the burden of less fortunate families in
providing school supplies for their children. It also creates an
impact to the community in order for the people to support the
government’s mandate in sustaining the promotion of peace and
development of the community and at the same time to bring happiness
to the people, making them feel that they are not forgotten. It
further encourages the children to continue to go to school and
learn for a better future.
The unit expressed its
gratitude to the foundation in collaboration with the DepEd for the
successful conduct of the gift-giving activity, which contributed to
the sustainment of peace through the efforts of the different
stakeholders in the province of Eastern Samar.
