Employee-led Christmas Caravan made the celebration of the Christmas season joyous for the residents of barangay San Miguel last December 21, 2019.
The Office of Campus Ministry and Community Engagement organized the event for the benefit of the folks of barangay San Miguel grappling with the aftermath of heavy rain, whose houses were destroyed or inundated.
The SJCBI employees provided not only preloved clothes and toys, canned goods and bags of rice, but also instituted a children’s party and parlor games to bring the joyful message of the coming of our Savior.
“Masaya maging masaya pero mas masaya ang nagpapasaya,” the employees exclaimed
The first phase of the project gathered the donations from generous members of the SJCBI faculty, staff and students. The second phase involved the planning of activities, coordination and the packing of the provisions.
Moreover, the Couples for Christ (CFC) partnered with the SJCBI family and Parokia San Jose Mangmangged to conduct a gift-giving to the same barangay last January 5, 2020.
Headed by Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Cadiz, the CFC ministry celebrated the Epiphany of the Lord by allowing barangay San Miguel to feel God’s presence through their gifts.
