Chooks-to-Go gives financial aid to Sisters of Mary School Boystown
As a thanksgiving gift to Sisters of Mary School Boystown, Chooks-to-Go gave the institution a check worth P100,000 and more.
Prior to the Manok ng Bayan-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas 3×3 tournament, Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. President Ronald Mascariñas had already planned to donate the said amount.
Little did everyone know that Mascariñas had a surprise in store.
“When I walked in here, many people were thanking us but we are really the ones who are thankful,” Mascariñas shared during his opening remarks of the two-day event in Cebu.
“With such a young age, you are already giving back to the country as the points we will accumulate here will help in our journey to the 2020 Olympics,” he added.
“That is why on top of the 100,000, we are going to give 100,000 every month to help continue the cycle of goodwill by the sisters here.”
The SBP commended Chooks-to-Go as it continues to spread their mission of helping in nation-building through basketball.
“The initial plan that we talked about is giving P100,000 but the other was on-the-spot. He only decided that on stage because he was happy with the kind of reception we got and the involvement of the kids and the sisters,” said SBP executive director Sonny Barrios.
Boystown said they plan to use the financial donation to continue the development of their sports program and to build more rooms inside the school.
“To be honest, I felt a tug in my heart,” said Sister of Mary School Boystown athletic director Van Parmis in Filipno. “I’m happy and blessed sa Boystown and Girlstown because Chooks-to-Go pledged 100,000 per month and that’s a very big help for the kids and for them to get more opportunities in life. Our wish has just been granted because of Chooks-to-Go and because of SBP, Boystown was recognized.”
“The kids’ happiness is our happiness,” added Sister Laresa Morasa, SM.
