Alphaland and PhilWeb bring Christmas Cheer to local Balesin Island residents

 

 

On December 13, selected employees from Alphaland and PhilWeb Corporation left the Alphaland Hangar in Manila for what has now become a yearly Christmas CSR event at Balesin. Entitled "Sharing Christmas Cheer! Hand-in-hand with the community", the two sister companies joined hands to share the season's blessings with the less fortunate. Upon arrival at Balesin, Alphaland and PhilWeb employees packed and assembled bags of fruit and ham in one of the function rooms at the Main Clubhouse. These were to be given out to the island's local residents the following day at a simple gathering held at the local community chapel.

 

 

 

The event started with a mass, followed by an inspiring Christmas speech given by Alphaland President Mario A. Oreta. After which, the children in attendance were treated to an exciting magic show and a round of parlor games organized by the Alphaland and PhilWeb employees. The program ended with the distribution of the repacked goodies, where parents and children were asked to form two lines to receive their gifts. A simple but delicious meal was then handed out to all those in attendance.
