On 12th of December 2020, 12 Merry Men became beacons of hope as they wore not just their Santa hats but also their Santa hearts as they gave Christmas gifts, goodies and food to 150 kids ages 2-6 of JCI Mandaue’s Day Care Centers in Labogon and Guizo.
Compliant to the strictest health protocols set by the local government units, The Merry Men set off to these two communities and distributed their Christmas packages which included kiddie masks, kiddie face shields, a bunch of toys, coloring books, kiddie items, a wallet and a piggy bank. They also provided food, ice cream and snack bars.
House to house these merry men braved the heat of the December sun just to be able to reach these kids in their respective abodes since health protocols strictly deny them to go out during this pandemic.
Congratulations to Project Chair Gab Melgo, VP For Community Toffee Yurong and LO President Nike Cagulada as well as the rest of JCI Mandaue for a successful gift giving activity.
The Merry Men would like to thank the local government units of Guizo and Labogon as well as Ms. Richie Duenas, Ma’am Mila and our pre-school teachers from the two day care centers for the assistance as well as our donors and benefactors to make this activity a huge success.
