The holidays are expected to be pared down affairs for most of us. But for those affected by both the pandemic and recent typhoons, it becomes doubly difficult to have a reason to smile.
Which is why when we were asked for donations to Mt. Tabor in Oriental Mindoro, we saw it as an opportunity to make others feel the spirit of the season, and of giving a semblance of hope in any way we can.
We sent this group from Mount Tabor relief packages in early December which they received promptly. Special thanks go to Ms. Jocely Evangelista for coordinating the drive.
All donations, sorting, packing, and transporting were done by volunteers and kind individuals – and the people who receive them are truly grateful (so are we)!
