Alongside Philippine Army personnel, we delivered a truckload of goods and food to people who had been affected by the Taal Volcano eruption in Batangas, February 21.
More than a hundred families received 620 packed meals from Chooks-to-Go and Adobo Connection and 600 packs of toiletries and other goods from Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) and the Army.
More than 30 BAVI employees and Army personnel handed out the donations in Agoncillo town, which is among the hardest hit areas.
BAVI’s Vice President for HR, Legal, and Corporate Administration Atty. Nedo Sasing, Assistant Vice President for Information Systems Gladys Quillopas, and HR Group Manager Jaimie Nativided also joined the relief operation. Meanwhile Army Personnel Management Center’s Capt. Patrick Retumban led his team to help BAVI deliver the goods efficiently.
With this activity, BAVI and the Philippine Army strengthened their ties to help Filipino communities. They have recently agreed to collaborate to help Army retirees find business or job opportunities post retirement. This is part of BAVI’s commitment to helping those who serve the country, even at the risk of their lives.
