Last December 26, 2012, the DPOTMH and the RCI held their annual Charity Gift-Giving activity headed by Ms. Priscela Jarmonilla of the Medical Social Services Office.
The recipients of the various donations were the Negros Occidental District Jail in Barangay Tabunan, Bago City, the Home for the Blind composed of 35 adopted families in Barangay Mansilingan, and the Womens’ Desk Center in Barangay Taculing, Bacolod City. The team gathered numerous grocery items and medicines donated by the employees of the DPOTMH and the RCI and delivered them to the above mentioned charities.
Everyone in the team felt an enormous sense of fulfillment upon seeing the expressions on the faces of the people they have given gifts to.
It was the group’s realization that gift-giving was not only about what was inside the presents they were giving, but also an expression of gratitude for all the blessings rendered throughout the year by sharing them to our less fortunate brothers.
