September 7, 2019, Quezon City — Rain and traffic did not hamper the day’s Corporate Social Responsibility activities led by Eastvantage for the kids and foster parents of the NORFIL Foundation. 

For our fourth year of partnership, Eastvantage returned to NORFIL main office to deliver the funds raised and donations gathered from the annual CareFair activities, an in-house fundraising campaign where Eastvantage employees hold activities such as foreign language lessons, DIY crafts classes, bake sales, and a mini-concert, all of which serve to engage and raise awareness for NORFIL Foundation.

The main program started once all the kids and parents arrived from their respective communities — Bagong Silang, Caloocan, and Rizal. Following the opening remarks, Eastvantage Business Services Director Joost Broesterhuizen took to the stage to welcome the participants on behalf of the company. 

The engagement with the kids began with a fun sing-along and storytelling about climate change as told by the Eastvantage volunteers, after which the kids and parents were treated to a healthy buffet and a magic show. To cap off the event, Eastvantage handed its check donation and gifts for the families. To recognize another year of partnership, NORFIL Executive Director, Ma. Teresa Nuqui presented Eastvantage with a certificate of appreciation.

The NORFIL Foundation is a non-profit organization that advocates for an inclusive community and a world where every child is loved and cared for in a family. They are open to receiving donations and applications as foster and adoptive parents. You can learn more about NORFIL here, and check out all find out more about Eastvantage here.
