Steadfast in its promise of giving back, renewable energy company SN Aboitiz Power Group (SNAP Group) brought joy to over 1,700 students in Benguet, Isabela, and Ifugao through its annual gift-giving drive this holiday season. The first leg of the tradition was held in Alfonso Lista, Ifugao, where 334 students from Sto. Domingo Elementary School and Sto. Domingo Elementary School-Annex received lunch boxes on December 5, 2019. The drive was led by AVP/Site Manager Willy Ferrer.
On December 10, 750 students from General Aguinaldo Elementary School in Ramon, Isabela enjoyed the same gifts. Ambatali Elementary School, only on its second year as host community of SNAP, also received lunch boxes for its 430 students on the same day. Both visits in Ramon were led by Operations Sr. Manager Ed Bundalian.
SNAP management’s visit to Ambuklao Elementary School in Bokod, Benguet was headed by President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Joseph Yu on December 26. A total of 130 students and 10 teachers, most of whom reside far from the school, received the same lunch box packages. To everyone’s delight, the students expressed their gratitude to SNAP by rendering a Christmas song.
Now on its fifth year, SNAP’s Tsinelas Project also drew smiles from the 104 students of General Aguinaldo Elementary School-Annex in Isla Verde, Ramon on December 13. Besides the lunch boxes, the children also received chocolates and slippers funded by the employees themselves. The visit was led by Ed Bundalian, the project’s initiator.
