First Philippine Industrial Park (FPIP)  in partnership with FPIP locators, launched “Packs to School,” a school supplies donation project for the benefit of underprivileged students in Tanauan, Batangas.

During the initial run, both FPIP and locator employees provided school supplies to students of Pagaspas Elementary School in Tanauan City.

The project was recognized during the turnover of supplies during the FPIP town hall meeting at SanTomas Suites, with FPIP president Giles Puno and barangay chairman Romy Micosa gracing the event. 

During the turnover ceremony, all Grade 6 enrollees of Pagaspas Elementary School were given the school supplies personally funded by FPIP employees.

Micosa extended his thanks to FPIP and First Industrial Township for choosing Pagaspas Elementary School as the main project beneficiary.

The Packs to School parkwide project was participated in by the following FPIP locator-partners: Kinpo Electronics Philippines Inc., Sonion Philippines Inc., Taiwan Fructose (Philippines) Inc., Yamaichi Seiko Philippines Inc., Nippon Micrometal Corp. Philippines, Eaton Industries Philippines, UAM Philippines Inc., SHI Manufacturing & Services (Phils.) Inc., NBC (Philippines) Car Technology Corp., El Sol Electronics Device Philippines Inc., Arkray Industry Inc. and Citizen Machinery Philippines Inc.

Since its launch led by FPIP’s Marco Amurao, the Packs to School project has quickly gained traction, with a total of 687 Grade 6 pupils from 12 public elementary schools in Tanauan City and Sto. Tomas benefiting during the initial year of implementation.
