No memos needed: Employees at Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) can collect a sufficient amount to help a person in need.
That’s exactly what employees at our Pangasinan Business Center did last week to help an old widow they found in Bauang, La Union.
It started when a former service crew member posted on her Facebook timeline the plight of an old woman she had found in a remote barangay. The widow, 86-year-old Corazon Rallustien Unatasco, lives with one of her daughters in a small dilapidated hut far from town.
Moved by Lola Corazon’s dire situation, BAVI employees began to chip in various amounts until the fund was enough to buy necessities for Lola Corazon. On November 22, more than a dozen of them visited Lola Corazon, bringing food, medicine, and other supplies, including some amount to buy her other needs. The employees called their small activity “Hulog Ko, Tulong Ko” – a donation activity combining the company and individual contributions.
“Of course, each one of us left with a smile, knowing that with that simple gesture and ‘bayanihan’, a family was happy to receive God’s grace and blessings,” said Pangasinan Business Center Head Fe Quismondo. “We will continue to help people who are in need. This is the first for our Business Center, and definitely it will not be the last.”
