DUMAGUETE CITY, PHILIPPINES – Brothers Rex Olpoc, Cyril Plantilla, Louie Sarmiento and Sister Karmen Arenas of Kapatirang Watchdog Lodge no.1 volunteered to help Gawad Kalinga Dumaguete distribute toys donated by Shell for GK Village Children.
Brother Cyril offered his car to be used to transport boxes of toys from one GK village to the other making it possible for the toys to be distributed to three GK villages in one morning. Aside from the toy distribution, the lodge also distributed free lollipops for the kids.
“It was a simple way of helping out. After all, this is what we are about” said Sister Karmen. Afterwards, the brothers, sister and friends in GK Dumaguete went to a restaurant together to eat lunch and a simple way of fellowship.
