Local bikers, business group conduct outreach program in Sibugay

By Rhea Grace La Plana

IPIL, Zamboanga Sibugay – The Ipil Cycling Enthusiasts (ICE) and Ipil Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (IFCCC) spearheaded a community outreach program recently in Sitio Puting Bato, Maasin in Zamboanga Sibugay.

According to Mr.Clave Carl Aenlle, a registered nurse working at the Provincial Health Office and a cycling enthusiast, ICE and IFCCC are geared towards helping others especially the less-privileged families.

These two community-oriented organizations went all the way to reach out to the needy in far-flung areas with their bikes and cars through mountainous trails and rocky roads to reach Sitio Puting Bato.

They distributed school supplies such as plastic bags, envelops, crayons, pencils and hygiene kits with toothpaste, toothbrush, comb and soap to 40 schoolchildren which was gladly received with warm smiles and happy faces.

Free haircut was also given to the kids who were eager to have a new look on the opening of classes.

Parents and local  folks in Maasin expressed their gratitude to ICE and IFCCC members for the services and supplies that their children received and for sharing their precious time.

ICE and IFCCC are geared towards charity programs and volunteerism with members who are  willing to share their time and resources to contribute something good in the community in the spirit of social responsibility.
