February 17 - Barangay Santa Maria, Antipolo. The volunteers met at InterCon Hotel in the morning and rode a van going to Antipolo, Rizal. We met with Cora Atayde, who coordinated this gift giving with Gloria Caoile and Toti Bantug. The 200 families were assembled in a big covered plaza and the gift bags were distributed to them by the volunteers. After the implementation, lunch was hosted by Mrs. Atayde at her residence in Antipolo. On the way back we passed by the Antipolo shrine and bought some of the local delicacies. Volunteers present were Gloria, Willie, Lottie, Roger, Ichu, Carl, Fely, Manny, Maurese and Kevin. Some members of the the Catholic Women's League and Father Joseph were there as well as Evelyn and Erwin from the Commission on Filipino Overseas.
