Sun Star Bacolod - - Business -

AS­SO­CIATES of Coca-cola Bev­er­ages Philip­pines Inc. (CCBPI) - Ba­colod have again vol­un­teered in the re­cent Bri­gada Eskwela pro­gram of the De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion in the city.

Since 2014, they have been help­ing re­pair and pre­pare pub­lic el­e­men­tary and high school class­rooms and other fa­cil­i­ties, mak­ing them ready for stu­dents be­fore the open­ing of classes.

For this year, over 50 as­so­ciates joined the Bri­gada Eskwela at An­to­nio L. Jayme El­e­men­tary School at Barangay Man­silin­gan in Ba­colod City.

They vol­un­teered to clean and paint the school fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing the main gate, en­trance path­way, and façade.

Plant Man­ager Bernard En­gada, in a state­ment, said Coca-cola has been in Ba­colod City for more than 70 years now, and it has al­ways been help­ing to take care of the com­mu­nity that it con­sid­ered called home.

En­gada said that with vol­un­teerism as a fun­da­men­tal part of their cul­ture in Coca-cola thus, they ac­tively in­volve them­selves with var­i­ous en­deav­ors like Bri­gada Eskwela.

“We are al­ways look­ing for­ward to ac­tiv­i­ties that give us op­por­tu­ni­ties to show our sup­port for Ba­colod,”

he said, adding that “we are proud that com­mu­nity en­gage­ment pro­grams en­abling us to do sus­tain­abil­ity ini­tia­tives, like Bri­gada Eskwela, are in­te­gral part of who we are as Coca-cola.”

For the com­pany’s Bri­gada Eskwela par­tic­i­pa­tion this year, Coca-cola hopes that it has able to help over 2,900 stu­dents in Ba­colod City by let­ting them en­joy a more con­ducive en­vi­ron­ment for learn­ing.

More­over, CCBPI as­so­ciates na­tion­wide ac­tively vol­un­teered their time and re­sources to pos­i­tively con­trib­ute to pro­grams and projects on ed­u­ca­tion, health, and liveli­hood, and en­vi­ron­ment con­ser­va­tion.

Coca-cola en­sures that it leaves a last­ing pos­i­tive im­pact in its host-com­mu­ni­ties as it works to­ward con­tin­u­ously strength­en­ing part­ner­ships with all stake­hold­ers through en­vi­ron­men­tally and so­cially-con­scious poli­cies, the com­pany said.
