P&A for a Cause (P&Ause), Punongbayan & Araullo’s employee organization for social responsibility under the P&A Foundation, brought smiles to the children of Elsie Gaches Village on December 5, 2014 as they held P&Amasko 2014: A P&A Christmas Project.
P&A volunteers joined together to bring an early Christmas gift to 100 participants of Elsie Gaches Village in Alabang, Muntinlupa City, wherein they prepared a simple Christmas Party for the kids. Prior to the activity, P&Ause put up three (3) donation boxes in P&A Makati office’s reception areas from November 26, 2014 to December 3, 2014. The donation boxes were filled with clothes, toys, and school supplies from P&A staff members. All collected donations were distributed to the children during the activity, together with toiletry supplies which was the main concern at Elsie Gaches. P&Ause also prepared a number of parlor games and the kids showed their gratitude with an entertaining dance number.
