AirAsia Philippines, together with McDonald’s Philippines, partners with 137-year old orphanage Asilo de San Vicente de Paul for its Christmas Corporate Social Responsibility campaign, “alwaysREDy: Magbigay Saya Ngayong Pasko.”
The Christmas CSR initiative augments the recreational program of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vicente de Paul for the orphaned children, marginalized youth, and disenfranchised individuals under their care. The alwaysREDy: Magbigay Saya Ngayong Pasko brought happiness to the 120-strong community of Asilo de San Vicente de Paul on December 12.
This year’s event featured song and dance performances from the AirAsia cabin crew, parlor games, and McDonald’s happy meals. The day’s highlight is the gift-giving activity of the toys and school supplies generated by the donation drive initiated by Filipino Allstars from November 18 to December 11.
