SAN MIGUEL, Leyte- The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) donated school supplies intended to the more than 100 selected students of the Bagacay Elementary School (BES), this town on May 21.
The school supplies donated by NGCP to the school were to be distributed to the 120 Grade 1 to Grade 3 students of the said school.
The giving of school supplies to BES students is part of NGCP’s program dubbed as ‘Gamit ni Bulilit’ wherein school supplies are distributed to selected students, especially coming from poor families.
Marietta Brazil, school principal, said that they are happy that the NGCP chose their school as one of the beneficiaries of their Gamit ni Bulilit program.
“This is the second time that our school received this kind of donation from the NGCP and we are happy that they visited our school and extended donations for our school children,” she said.
Milfrance Capulong of the NGCP said that they are just happy to help the parents of the students by providing their children of their school needs.
“Before the school year starts, meron ng idea ang mga parents na mabibigyan sila ng NGCP para di na sila bumili ng school supplies,” Capulong said. (SHELLA MAE D.ASTORGA, NwSSU Student Intern)
