Some 45 indigent children here were the beneficiaries of "Children’s Day" event organized by Home Depot Center Sunday.
According to Store Manager Lex Mariano, the event is part of the
Christmas and Corporate Social Responsibility Program of Home Depot to
its immediate community.
Home Depot, according to Mariano, is not only a business
establishment concerned on home building essentials but also holds
values for community involvement and development.
"We identified 45 kids that we would try to help in their studies.
These kids belong to indigent families. We try to orient them to have
dreams and Home Depot will assist them," Mariano said.
The children from Barangay Sta. Lucia here, were given school bags, notebooks, books and other school supplies.
Administrative Manager Sally Kho told Sun.Star Pampanga that the
Children’s Day Program involved orientation and seminars for the said
children regarding their schooling and plans in pursuing their dreams.
She said they would monitor the progression of the studies of the said students and help in their other school requirements.
"We also plan to institutionalize this program with other Home Depot
stores in the Philippines and probably cater to more children," Kho
