To spread more love this Christmas season, Atimonan One Energy, Inc. (A1E) was joined by Jollibee Food Corporation, Landbank of the Philippines – Atimonan, and Jacob Projects, Inc. for this year’s community outreach program.
The activity – which was held last December 7 – involved 132 students from Villa Ibaba Elementary School who participated in a short Christmas party, a gift-giving and a feeding program.
This was made possible through the fund-raising effort initiated by A1E – which conducts the annual Christmas activity – and was supported by Jollibee, Landbank and Jacob which operate in Atimonan.
Students, parents, faculty members and barangay officials were very grateful to A1E and its partner organizations.
“This is an early Christmas gift to our school. You are truly the messenger of peace and development, “said Mr. Ricardo Saniel, School Head Teacher.
“It was a beautiful thing to witness the kids receiving their gifts. We are happy that in our own little way, we were able to make their Christmas extra special,” said Christopher Gayanilo, Health, Safety, Security Environment Manager of Jacob Projects.
Cynthia N. Pardo, CSR and External Affairs Manager, added: “A1E is very blessed to get the support of Jollibee, Landbank and Jacobs for this corporate employee volunteering program and hopes that this partnership will continue in the years to come”.
The annual Christmas activity also aims to engage the employees of A1E in sharing their time and resources to the community.
Company employees also participate in other community activities, including the annual back-to-school drive where school supplies are donated to Atimonan schools.
A1E is the developer of the country’s first ultra-supercritical coal-fired power plant in the country. The 2×600-MW plant will be built in Atimonan, Quezon and will become the country’s most efficient baseload power plant when it starts commercial operations.
