 APPEAL FOR SUPPORT TO X'MAS DRIVE 2003

Damayan-Buluseño, Inc. is again appealing for support to Damayan-Buluseño Christmas Drive ’03 for the benefit of the poor families in Bulusan.  This is a yearly joint project of the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Bulusan under the administration of Mayor Juan G. Guysayko and the local residents and Damayan-Buluseño, Inc. in Metro-Manila in their desire to bring cheer to the homes of the less fortunate during the Christmas season.

In this project, DBI solicits donations of food items and used clothings and other personal effects to be sent to Bulusan in time for Christmas.  These items will be supplemented with rice coming from the LGU and civic-minded Buluseños. 

Last year, a jeepney load of various food items and personal effects was sent to Bulusan by the association while 30 sacks of rice were donated by the LGU and the local residents.  Hundreds of indigent families were benefited.

With the present economic hardships when many are living in poverty, DBI expects more Buluseños and friends in Metro-Manila and elsewhere would be induced to give their share in the spirit of Christmas.

Those who wish to be a part of this project, may bring or send their donations to the Knights of Columbus Clubhouse in Intramuros, Manila where the mass and Christmas party of Damayan-Buluseño, Inc. will be held on December 14, 2003 at 2:00 P.M.

For more details, please inquire from DBI President, Rogelio Fuentes at telephone no. (632) 929-5277 or Ms. Luz Gamba at (632) 551-4887. 

For local residents, they may turn over their donations to Mr. Juan G. Galindes, the chairman of the Local Coordinating Board of Damayan-Buluseño, Inc.  He will then turn over all the items to the DSWD for proper distribution.
