Roxas City – The Metro Roxas Water District (MRWD) Management and the Metro Roxas Water District Employees Association and Union (MRWDEAU) has chosen the Brgy. Talon Elementary School to be the beneficiary of this year’s Christmas gift-giving held last December 15, 2011.
In a program prepared for the activity, a total of 276 pupils from grades 1 to 6 were given Christmas goodies; 21 packs of grocery items were received by those identified by the School to be the poorest among the poor; special gift packages were also presented to those parents who have been supportive and who are actively working hand-in-hand with the School on its endeavors; and an additional surprise gifts from no less than the District’s General Manager were distributed to selected pupils. There were also party games and Jollibee mascots’ special participation that undoubtedly have filled the kids’ morning with joy, laughter and excitement.
The messages given by the school’s Principal and that of the MRWD family thru GM Delgado stressed a unison call for passing on a good turn to our fellows. A reminder that as one is enriched; he is to remember he has also to enrich others. To this is anchored the annual activity of the joint initiative of the Management, Employees Association and the Union in the pursuit of reaching out to the community and making alive the spirit of Christmas by way of sharing.
