Uniqlo gives love, clothing to Sapang Bato Aeta village

ANGELES CITY –Global Japanese retail brand Uniqlo continues to make the life of Filipinos better this Holiday season by giving back to the community.

On Friday, Uniqlo visited the Aeta community in Barangay Sapang Bato this city to donate clothes and food the more than 1,000 Aetas as part of the company’s 10 Million Ways to Help campaign.

Georgette Barrera-Jalasco, Marketing Director for Uniqlo Philippines; Tomo Yoshikawa, head of Corporate Social Responsibility for Uniqlo in the Asean region; and Camille Pacis, Senior Public Relations Manager, led the distribution of clothes that Uniqlo customers and employees have donated for the Aeta community.

Each of the more than 200 family-representatives was given a 10-minute chance to select five items from an assortment of shirts, pants and other accessories just like shopping in a Uniqlo store sans the payment.

One of the first individuals to pick their items was Carmen Miranda who selected pants and shirt for her husband and children.

Yoshikawa said the project has been a part of Uniqlo’s CSR for almost 10 years now and is being held in different countries.

Uniqlo encouraged its employees and customers to bring lightly-used clothing to its stores around Metro Manila for donation to the Aeta community.

This, the company said, reinforces the commitment of Uniqlo to uphold its promise to society and achieve growth that is sustainable for both the company and society at large. –Albert Lacanlale/Contributor
