Postponing our service projects on growing local economies for our adopted community in Riverside, Malagasang 2C, Imus due to this Covid quarantine was saddening for our club. However, we made use of the time fine tuning our service projects on seven areas of focus including this topic through online meetings as well as attending community and business-related webinars.
Good thing one of the things we did prior to quarantine declaration was to follow through with the call of Ms. Mae Binauhan of DZRH Teleradyo Operation Tulong Public Service Hour in celebrating a momentous 82nd Anniversary of their radio station. Last July 19, together with our IPP Myrna Dacanay, SDG Sonny Mercado and RCCC IPP Gemma Parcia, we delivered five (5) Kariton Pangkabuhayan to DZRH Office in CCP Complex.
Ms. Mae Binauhan requested us to donate these push carts for the livelihood of their chosen less privileged people in different communities who sought their assistance in this matter. Little did we know that there will be a collaboration with Vieva Farmers Coalition for all the vegetables and rice that these recipients can sell right away. The push carts we donated were filled to the brim and the beneficiaries were sentimental when they were handed the push carts, some were overwhelmed with the assistance and even cried, while we on the other hand were filled with happiness seeing their smiles of gratitude. RC Imus East was truly proud of this collaboration in improving the lives of small sellers or beneficiaries. Once again, our Flagship Project: Kariton Pangkabuhayan has proven that we are making a difference in the lives of the people we collaborate with.
While on quarantine we attended webinars to harness our knowledge and learn new things on more than five (5) webinars about community development, agricultural undertakings, business related topics in the last 2 months. With Agripreneurship webinars, we resonated with it and found ourselves in Ministries without Borders where they have urban farmers who fits the people we need to help.
In some of the business-related webinars, we uncovered our need in improving our digital competence and enhancing the way we handle our social media accounts. Attending these webinars were never boring for us since our intention is to share all these acquired learnings to our adopted community which will lead to their better social and economic standing in the nearest future.
Putting creative ideas and efficient work will surely bring us the development we envision for the community we are focusing all our service projects to. Hoping that the day in serving this community will come soon for more life changing directions.
