As part of Cloudstaff’s commitment to help out the students of public schools around Angeles City, school supplies and other presents collected through the Back to School Donation Drive have been now delivered.
Last month, Department of Education (DepEd) Division of Angeles City conducted their official kick-off ceremony for the Brigada Eskwela 2018 program where several stakeholders, including Cloudstaff, gathered and committed to help in the betterment of public schools as well as to support the students. Graham Ernst, Cloudstaff’s Creative Director, and CS Cares members represented the company and expressed the company’s full support. In his speech, he mentioned how educators and parents create a great impact on a child’s education.
Brigada Eskwela is an annual program of the Department of Education that aims to bring together education stakeholders to participate and contribute their time, effort, and resources to prepare public school facilities for the opening of a new school year. This has been the second year of Cloudstaff to participate in the said program.
The whole organisation was involved in supporting the program. CS Cares, the company’s corporate social responsibility group, spearheaded the Back to School Donation Drive for the benefit of public school students under DepEd-Angeles City. Staff from all sites were encouraged to donate school supplies or cash through salary deduction.
CS Cares officers and Graham Ernst, together with Cloudstaff’s Marketing Director, John Lambie, personally delivered the fruits of the Cloudstaffers’ unity to the DepEd division office in Pulung Bulu, Angeles City. They were welcomed by the DepEd Superintendent, Ms. Lalaine Cunanan, and the respective principals of the recipient schools.
We were able to provide 500 sets of school kits, 95 school chairs, and a number of electric fans that will benefit the students of the chosen public schools. This year’s donation drive is clearly a success and this would not be possible without the kindness and generosity of our Cloudstaffers.
Cloudstaff might not be able to provide all the students and schools’ needs, but we are still grateful of this milestone we have reached—to create a positive impact on the educational sector the best way we can.
