The Insular Foundation has turned over educational assistance to Grade 6 students in three public elementary schools.   

The Foundation distributed school uniforms, shoes, bags, school supplies and hygiene kits to 257 Adopt-A-Scholar beneficiaries from Bayanan Elementary School Main and Alabang Elementary School Main in Muntinlupa City, and Balili Elementary School Main in Benguet. The Foundation also awarded cash gifts to the top three scholars from these schools.    

 

Insular Foundation Program Manager Teresita T. Melad said InLife employees support the Adopt-A-Scholar Program as their way of sharing their blessings with others.

“Every year for six consecutive years, InLife employees donate to Insular Foundation’s Adopt-A-Scholar Program. InLife employees hope that all our scholars can finish elementary education and move up to secondary and college levels,” she said.
