The CPU College of Pharmacy in collaboration with The Friends of Cancer Kids, Inc. Iloilo Foundation organized a donation drive entitled, “Parmaniyahan: A Cancer Kids Christmas Celebration Donation Drive” last December 3, 2023 in Solana Garden, Iloilo.
Thru the donation, the student council decided to foster the spirit of giving and participative governance by reaching out to our constituents by gathering 10 pesos from each student to buy the individual gifts of 32 beneficiaries that match their profile given by the foundation.
With the donations made from people friends and family, the student council managed to raise enough money to push through with the event and achieved the goal of securing the individual gifts for each of the beneficiaries fitting their age and profile.
