Last December 20, 2015, JCI Iligan Inc. together with three other chapters in Kulintang, Panguil Bay, and JJI Iligan went to Barangay Abuno to give out Christmas gifts to the residents there. But it’s not the usual giving of gifts, they also conducted a short trainings to the children, the youth, adults and the senior citizens.
A total estimate of 300 beneficiaries from the youngest to the oldest.
While waiting for the rest of the participants, I helped out preparing wrapping the gifts. These are notebooks, pencils and crayons.
The theme of this gift giving event is “We are one this Christmas”. This event also has a short training and feeding program for the children.

Helping is like investing in a business. But investing in people is the best investment of all. Thank God for organizations such as JCI for being a positive influence to the city of Iligan.
