Nestle Holds 2nd ULAB Collection Event, TB Awareness Session for Truck Representatives

In time with Earth Day, Nestle Philippines, Inc. – North and South Distribution Centers held their second ULAB collection activity for their truckers in Laguna and Bulacan.

Almost 5 tons of ULABs were hauled last April 24 to continue their support to Project LEAP through textbook donations. Nestle-NDC and SDC and their truckers have adopted Ambalgan and Teresita Elementary Schools in Sto. Nino, South Cotabato.

Among the current roster of Balik Baterya donors, Nestle, a champion in sustainable development and Greening the Supply Chain, is the first company to influence its suppliers to support the program.

The representatives of the truckers were also supportive because they liked the idea that through their participation, their companies are able to help improve public schools.

The day before the collection event, PBSP also conducted a session on tuberculosis for their truck drivers and company representatives. The session was provided as an extension of the Balik Baterya Program’s TB awareness campaign.
