In 21 schools across the country, Chooks-to-Go is giving away gifts to teachers in celebration of World Teachers’ Day.
The country’s largest rotisserie chicken chain is distributing 1,700 Bounty Fresh dressed chicken and Magiting Masks to schools in almost all regions of the Philippines.
Chooks-to-Go will also hand out 100 gift checks as raffle prizes in the Department of Education’s Teachers’ Day virtual event on October 10.
According to Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) President Ronald Mascarinas, he has a special affection for teachers.
“Teachers are closest to my heart as my mom was a teacher all her life,” he said. “She was widowed at 40 and all five of us siblings were raised from her livelihood as a teacher.”
He added that teachers make “many hidden and silent sacrifices everyday”, which further prove their heroism.
For years now, BAVI has ben extending support to teachers through DepEd. The company joins the annual Brigada Eskwela program, which helps teachers to prepare their classrooms for the new school year.
BAVI has also supported schools in Laguna and Cebu through the Adopt-a-School program, and has given assistance in National Teachers’ Month activities. The company also aids teachers through Ayala Foundation’s Maging Magiting Flag Campaign.
