We are very grateful to all who helped us make the 2019 KIDS Christmas Outreach in Tarlac a success. Thank you very much for your untiring support. Although this is annual activity for the club and our members, each year is a unique and unforgettable experience.
Lots of Love Near and Far
This year, we are overwhelmed and grateful to receive a lot of support not only from our family and friends near us but also to those who live outside the Philippines. With that, we were able to complete our loot bags and Noche Buena packages right on time.
We also welcomed new friends who volunteered to help us during the actual days. And as always, we are thankful to our generous host and partner, Councilor Topey Delos Reyes, for opening his house to the members and volunteers.
Sharing the Christmas Joy to the Children and Elderly
Living in the country where the Christmas season starts as early as the first day of September gave us an advantage to have our 2019 KIDS Christmas Outreach in Tarlac City on the 30th November and 1st December. On the first day, the team visited about 20 underprivileged families especially those living outside the city center.
Oftentimes, reaching the target house took longer than expected because of the brief stops for distributing toys and angel chocolates to the children playing on the streets.
And before the day ended, we spent some play time with the children at St. Joseph for the Special Children.
On the second day, our playtime with the children continued as we spent the day with the boy from Boys Town and the young ladies from Home for the Women. We played games, enjoyed performances, and shared some good food courtesy of Coun. Topey.
Overall, it was a weekend full of adventures, inspiration, and fun memories. To all our family; friends; partners; sponsors; and volunteers, thank you once again and happy holidays from all of us!
