2016 ANNUAL REPORT

EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEERISM

The Lopez Credo is embraced by First Gen’s employees who share and live these values. Many of them reach out to the community out of their own volition. More often than not, our initiatives stem from their ideas and concerns.
Bahay Aruga. First Gen employees participated in a fun-filled day of games and coloring activities which benefited 26 children living with cancer. Employee donations amounting to PHP255,800.00 helped to make this event possible.
EmPOWER Scholarship. First Gen, with the help of employee donations, provided scholarship assistance to four (4) college students enrolled in the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Taguig Campus (PUP-Taguig). Ernan Balderrama and John Tanay, both scholars since their first year in college, graduated this April with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. Scholars Mau Pedernal and Regine Benavidez are still taking up a BS in Business Administration.
Auction for Education. To further help our scholars, more than 200 First Gen employees participated in our Auction for Education activity last September 28, 2016. The activity raised a total of PHP321,845.27 for the benefit of our four (4) college scholars.
Brigada Eskwela. The students of Cuyambay Elementary School had a clean and safe environment to come back to when classes resumed, thanks to the 116 employee-volunteers from First Gen who participated in the Brigada Eskwela. Employee donations amounting to PHP71,150 funded the school’s facelift and the school supplies donated to its 189 students.
Red Bags Campaign. During the season of giving, First Gen’s Red Bag Campaign provides orphanages and marginalized communities with a variety of food items to serve as their Noche Buena for Christmas. Employee donations amounting to PHP483,400.00 funded the distribution of 1,407 red bags. The campaign benefited 12 orphanages and institutions, namely: the National Children’s Hospital, Elsie Gaches Village, Saint Rita Orphanage, Philippine General Hospital, Marikina Boy’s Town, Merixtell, Hospicio de San Jose, Quirino Memorial Medical Center, Digman Elementary School, Don Bosco Tondo Community, and Cottolengo.
