HAPI Zambales conducted its Bread Donation Drive: Wave 2 last March 9. We distributed 1,800 pieces of bread rolls to patients of San Marcelino District Hospital in San Marcelino, Zambales and James L. Gordon Memorial Hospital in Olongapo City. From the initial Php 3,000 personal pledge, we were able to gather more than enough funds to provide bread to one more hospital than originally planned.
Effort, time, and a big part of the funds came from good friends and families. We’d like to thank our sponsors:
- Jomher Navalta Rabang
- Emma Reynolds
- Carren Gae Rabang Perucho
- Eloisa Mae Bautista Navalta
- Maria Juana Valenzuela
- Angie Driskell
- Althea Nicart
- and an anonymous donor
Because of their overwhelming support, we were able to fund our upcoming 3rd bread donation drive on March 27 for the Aeta communities of Brgy. Cadmang Reserva, Cabangan, Zambales.
The loaves of bread are produced by Rabang’s Bakery from San Narciso, Zambales owned by Garry Rabang, HAPI Zambales’ Assistant Lead Convenor.
