Christmas giving in conjunction with DSWD, Alfonso

On December 20, 2016, the Christmas giving party planned by RIMM in cooperation with DSWD-Alfonso, Cavite which had selected 51 of the poorest families in three barangays, got underway on a beautiful sunny day. By 8:00 am three vans and one truck had been loaded at the RIMM H.Q. with cured firewood for cooking, 51 bags of rice, assorted canned goods and coconuts. Additionally bananas, noodles, shampoos and bath soaps had been donated by volunteer Christine and her family.

The gift distribution team consisting of IPP Raymund, PE Betty (with husband Fred, grand daughter Ashana & assistant Andy), Honorary Member Jun Baurile, volunteer Christine, DSWD Alfonso Officer Gina (with husband Ric) and supportive members of her staff then quickly departed for the scheduled all-day event. Most of the items were distributed at individual homes but because of time limitations, some were distributed at a barangay hall. The handing out of gifts to surprised but very appreciative participants was accompanied by singing of Christmas carols with the children also heartily participating and receiving P20 bills for their spirited efforts in addition to ice cream from the ice cream vendor. It was truly a memorable and meaingful Christmas event for everyone.
