Jollibee and Jollibee Group Foundation spread hope and joy among Marawi kids
The country‚Äôs number one fast-food chain partnered with the Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) to spread hope and joy last December through the “Magbahagi para sa mga Bata sa Marawi”, a Jollibee Maaga ang Pasko special gift-giving program.
Jollibee and JGF volunteers also gave away Jollibee Yumburgers, Red Ribbon treats, toiletries and hygiene kits to more than 500 students from 15 schools who gathered at the Amai Pakpak Central Elementary School.
The students and their teachers, school and local Department of Education officials welcomed Jollibee as he delighted everyone with a jolly dance number. The beneficiaries, in turn, showed their appreciation to everyone‚Äôs best friend by doing various song and dance numbers.
The gift-giving activity was made possible with the help of the Alrose Group of Companies, Philippine Business for Social Progress, the local government of Marawi, and other volunteers. Other donation partners were Robinsons Department Store, Adarna House, Goodwill Bookstore, Katha Publishing, Rex Bookstore and Vibal Publishing House, Inc.
The program supports Jollibee‚Äôs belief in #SharingJoy especially among children, as it fosters love, care and compassion for others.
