Some 300 children from the host community of Therma South Inc. (TSI), a subsidiary of the AboitizPower, were treated to an early Christmas Party during the company’s Christmas Outreach activity last December 3, 2016 at the power plant site in Binugao, Toril, Davao City.

“This is the fourth year we are conducting this outreach as our way of giving back to our host communities -- Barangay Binugao in Davao City and Barangay Inawayan in Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur -- who have supported us throughout these years,” said Jason C. Magnaye, TSI CSR Manager.

Children were treated to favorite Filipino snacks like taho, popcorn, ice cream, cotton candy, spaghetti and fried chicken.

“This Christmas Outreach is really organized for the kids so that they will begin to feel and enjoy the Season of Giving,” said Engr. Valentin S. Saludes III, TSI Plant manager.

Games like Bring Me and The Boat is Sinking were held where kids won different prizes. Team members of TSI also participated in the fun and games. The children were then entertained by a dance number by Jollibee and a magic show.

A poster making was also held where each group were tasked to make of what Christmas is to them. The activity brought out the artistic talents of the children and at the same time challenged those of the team members who were assisting them.

“This year’s Christmas outreach is also made more special with the gift bags prepared by our team members here in TSI,” Magnaye said.

The children were also given gift bags containing some toys and Noche Buena items.

“These Christmas gifts that were given to the children are all from the team members, who put together their own resources to buy these gifts. We hope the children, including their parents, will enjoy what is inside the gift bags,” Saludes said.
