LU Senior High graduates run donation drive for teachers

Laguna University
September 10, 2020
 

Stuck at home but nonetheless active, the pioneer batch of Laguna University Senior High School (LU-SHS) graduates spearheaded a donation drive aimed at providing an added layer of protection to the teachers who helped nurture them.

LU-SHS alumni banded together under the leadership of Jeanne Marie Lawas, Micah Punzalan, Janelle Ebron, and Chenelyn Esguerra when they recognized the urgent need for sanitation supplies to contribute in mitigating the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the school premises.

Despite the imposed quarantine restrictions, the former students managed to hold several virtual planning sessions where they brainstormed on how they will go about the donation drive.

They identified items of utmost priority and devised a way to contact possible donors by means of creating posters with pertinent transaction information for both in-kind and monetary donations.

To increase their reach and appeal to more people, they dubbed the drive as “Tulong-Agapay” and further expounded on their objective of not just showing gratitude but also helping their SHS teachers cope with the effects of the pandemic.

September 07, 2020 was the day when all the effort poured into the drive finally came into fruition. As strict quarantine protocols eased up, donation drive committee members John Michael Atienza and AJ Gregorio of SHS Batch 2018 and Rey Manuel Batacan, a volunteer, personally visited Laguna University to hand in the generated items which include: face mask, face shield, alcohol, foot bath, chlorine, foot-operated alcohol dispenser, alcohol spray canister, and disinfectant alcohol.

They initially planned on providing materials solely for sanitation and protection, but as they received an unprecedented amount of help from other graduates, private individuals, and different organizations who champion the same cause, they were also able to provide school supplies such as bond paper and printer ink as well as 30 food packs for the employees of Laguna University.

The school officials headed by LU President Dr. Charlemagne G. Laviña, Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Bartolome T. Tanguilig III, together with SHS OIC-Principal Mrs. Agnes G. Ycogo were surprised and grateful for the act of generosity of the SHS graduates.

Truly, the core values of LU were instilled in these young individuals as reflected in their deeds of kindness.
