Bags, notebooks, papers, other school supplies and snacks were distributed by the Brotherhood to Linabo ES pupils as the Brotherhood’s way of encouraging and helping the young in that part of the city to study in school.

In his words of welcome before the distribution, Mr. Jimmy T. Gemina, school head of Linabo ES, he expressed his gratitude to BCBP DIPOLOG EAST CHAPTER for their brilliant move. He was thankful to all parents and pupils involved for their support and cooperation to the gift-giving activity of the Brotherhood.

In a short message by Bro. Sayre, he said that the food and the materials given to the pupils were solicited and shared by the chapter from its thoughtful and active members. He also exclaimed that someday, through proper education, these pupils will become businessmen and professionals who will lead the nation in different arenas.

The activity ended successfully around 10:00 o’clock and BCBP members were happy to see the children and the community members going home with happy faces and easy smiles.
