The AFP Officers’ Ladies Club, Inc. distributed assorted bags and school supplies to the kids of military personnel of WestMinCom last July 01, 2018 as part of the Ladies’ Club’s way of recognizing soldiers’ heroism and their dedication to serve the country and people.
The distribution of bags and school supplies to more than 150 children aged 5 to 12 years old at the WestMinCom Gym was spearheaded by Mrs. Marissa P. Galvez (wife of AFP Chief of Staff General Carlito G. Galvez, Jr.) and Mrs. Divina C. Dela Vega (Wife of Lt Gen Arnel B Dela Vega, Commander, WestMinCom) together with the officers and members of the AFP-OLCI.
The school bags and school supplies were donated by the AFP-OLCI in partnership with the CRSAFP, Rotary Club of Camp Aguinaldo, DWDD Katropa Radio, Anghel ng Masa, WMC Ladies Club, Red Cross-Malabon, Rotary Club of Cainta, and the CMO Regiment, Philippine Army.
In their statement, both Mrs. Galvez and Mrs. Dela Vega thanked the leadership of the officers’ ladies club in choosing WestMinCom dependents as their beneficiaries for the project.
Mrs. Dela Vega, in her message said, “We appreciate the gesture of our fellow officers’ ladies! This is also to highlight our advocacy for everyone to focus on our children’s education.”
“As your parents are busy in the field, you should strive hard in your studies, with those bags, notebooks and other school supplies that the officers’ ladies brought today,” Mrs. Dela Vega told the children before the school supplies were handed to them.
