Books Turned Over for South Cotabato Schools

Last October 8, Nestle SCM Transport's AVP Mr. Dennis Llovido and Ms. Rhia Pereda, Ramcar's CSR Staff Ms. Connie Deligero and PBSP staff turned over textbooks to their Balik Baterya-adopted schools in Sto. Nino, South Cotabato --- Ambalgan Elementary School and Teresita Elementary School.

A total of 426 textbooks were purchased using the first batch of ULABs turned over by Nestle and its truckers. Joining also the team were truckers Fast Cargo Logistics and Sultan Kudarat M & T, Inc.

As response, Grade VI student John Bercades said, "Thank you to Nestle, to Motolite and to PBSP for the textbooks. The more we read, the more knowledge we gain and better pupils we become."

"Creating shared value is always in the heart of Nestle," Mr. Llovido said in his speech. He thanked the school, the PTCA and the LGU for the appreciation and support to the project.

Nestle SCM Transport and its truckers have committed to assist the two schools through Balik Baterya. A feeding project and a remedial reading camp are being proposed to be supported by the funds from the second and third collection events.
