744 benefited from CDC, locators, gift giving

CLARK FREEPORT— At least 744 indigents, including children and Persons With Disabilities (PWDs), benefitted from the “Noche Buena” packages and other gift items from Clark Development Corporation (CDC) in cooperation with several locators here and donor-participants of Color Manila Run recently.

In a report submitted to CDC President and CEO Noel F. Manankil, AVP for External Affairs Department of CDC (CDC-EAD) Rommel C. Narciso said the state-run firm distributed food packs, assorted gift items and used clothing placed in shoeboxes. The donation was held at the Parade Grounds.

The CDC gift giving is the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project for the year 2016, that aims to uplift the marginalized sector within the Freeport contiguous areas.

Of the 744 beneficiaries, 100 were PWDs, 470 were children and the rest were members of the Indigenous People (IPs).

The gift packs include basic commodities such as rice, canned-goods, milk, toothpaste, laundry detergent, shampoo, bar soap, among others.

Aside from Color Manila, Quest Hotel and Conference Center Clark, Clark Water, and Subic Clark Alliance Development Council (SCADC) supported the CDC’s CSR.

The indigent-beneficiaries were from the cities of Angeles and Mabalacat, Porac town in Pampanga, including some poor communities of Bamban, Tarlac.

Likewise, shoeboxes from participants of Color Manila Black Light Run were given to the following institutions: Institutions of Duyan ni Maria, Children’s Joy Foundation, Children’s Home of Eucharist Love & Kindness, Bahay Pag-Ibig, St. Joseph Home for Special Children, among others.

Prior to the event, CDC conducted evaluation and coordination meetings with the Department of Social Welfare and Development and officials of various concerned local government units and Institutions in order to identify less fortunate members of the communities who will benefit for the said project.
