PAUSE joined the Rotary Club of Makati Salcedo (RCMS) during its annual outreach program at the Senden Home for homeless boys last Thursday, March 27, 2003. Senden Home was founded by Fr. Francis Senden, CICM and operates homes for homeless boys in Paco, Manila and Binangonan, Rizal. It also assists in the schooling of 80 or so former residents who were successfully reunited with their families.RCMS has been a benefactor of Senden Homes since 1994. At P&A, the Coca-Cola and Argosy/Warburg audit teams, recipients of the Founders’ award in 1999 and 2000, respectively, have likewise adopted Senden Homes as a beneficiary. This year, continuing the tradition, former P&A manager, Gani Laguisma, who headed those engagements when still with the Firm, sent from San Francisco, California a balikbayan-boxful of children’s books for Senden Homes through P&AUSE.PAUSE was represented by Dang Santiago, Laarni Reyes, and Nyg Yumping together with the author. Senden Homes’ wish list this year included computers, school supplies and bags, books and toys – and all these were fulfilled by RCMS and P&AUSE with a Jollybee party to boot.

Always remember… you’re never too busy to PAUSE.
