School communities’ operations bolstered through educational support by the Church

In support of continuous education amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donated hygiene kits and reams of printer paper to Macayo Integrated School (MIS) and Atainan-Caranglaan Integrated School (ACIS), both located in Alcala, Pangasinan. This was done through the humanitarian arm of the Church, Latter-day Saints Charities (LDSC), on 22 January 2021.

A total of 1,135 hygiene kits were delivered for use by pupils and 325 boxes of printer paper to aid faculty members in printing modules.

MIS received 720 hygiene kits and 200 boxes of printer paper, whereas ACIS got 433 hygiene kits and 125 boxes of printer paper.

On behalf of the respective school’s organizations, principals from both schools thanked the Church for the timely assistance.

“Kami ay nagpapasalamat sa mga donasyon na ipinaabot ng Ang Simbahan ni Jesucristo ng mga Banal sa mga Huling Araw para sa aming paaralan. Malaki ang tulong na maibibigay nito sa mga guro, mga mag-aaral at mga magulang na kabilang dito sa eskwelahang ito. Muli, kami ay lubos na nagpapasalamat (We are grateful for the donations extended by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to our school. This is a big help to the teachers, pupils, and parents who belong to this school. Again, we are very grateful),” said MIS Principal Emory Manzano.

ACIS Principal Santiago Tamondong likewise appreciated the donation, saying, “We are very grateful for these donations from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and also to the members who are showing charities through their fasting. We are going to use these hygiene kits and coupon bonds to help the teachers, students, and parents of this school.”

This project became possible through the initiative of Church member couple Edwin and Mary Jean Marzan, through the help of Bayambang Stake (diocese) President Jimmy Cancino, Self-Reliance Services Manager Gerardo Guerra, and Communication Council Director Zenaida Tagulao.

The Church continues with its unwavering commitment to provide relief to vulnerable communities from the effects of the public health crisis.
