The students of Bago Elementary School in Talomo, Davao City have something new to be super happy about!
Jollibee, the country’s leading fastfood chain recently inaugurated a brand new classroom in my hometown Davao City for the students of Bago Elementary School in Talomo.
According to Jollibee Philippines, this is one of the 40 classrooms that popular fastfood chain committed to construct under its Build-A-Classroom project, an undertaking with the Jollibee Franchisees Association and the Jollibee Foundation.
It also represents the company’s concrete support to the Bayanihang Pampaaralan program, being one of the first private organizations to come forward to help address the classroom gap.
Jollibee Senior PR Manager Arline Adeva said “Jollibee is steadfast in extending the same help to other schools in other parts of the country, especially those which are under DepEd’s list of priority schools for classroom construction.”
And here’s one more thing to look forward to — one more classroom will be donated in RC Quimpo Elementary School! What wonderful news! 🙂
The Build-A-Classroom project was one of the components of last year’s Maaga ang Pasko, which integrated a fund-raising effort through the Jollibee and Friends dolls novelty offering.
With more than 400,000 Jollibee and Friends dolls sold and the additional support from Jollibee Franchisees Association and the Jollibee Foundation, a total of P20 million was raised—enough for the construction of at least 40 classrooms all over the country.
Congratulations Jollibee and thank you from all of us in Davao! 🙂
