CLARK FREEPORT— Some 33 schools from Metro Clark areas benefited from Clark Development Corporation’s (CDC) Brigada Eskwela 2022, in partnership with Clark locators.

The said schools from Pampanga and Tarlac received construction and paint materials, including supplies such as printers, inks, projectors, boxes of face masks, gallons of alcohol, and fire extinguishers from the benefactors.

Armchairs made from recovered woods in Clark were also given by CDC Environmental Permits Division (EPD) headed by Engr. Rogelio M. Magat as part of the donations.

CDC Director Atty. Bryan Matthew C. Nepomuceno attended the said event, on behalf of CDC President and CEO Atty. Agnes VST Devanadera, to welcome the participants and beneficiaries.

“First, I would like to acknowledge our benefactors. Thank you so much for your generosity and your love for education to support these deserving schools. And to the beneficiaries, congratulations to all of you. I’m happy to say that at CDC, there is a need to help the education sector, particularly those in the public schools’ sector,” he said.

For her part, Bamban, Tarlac Public Schools District Supervisor Rosalinda C. Bartolome expressed her appreciation to CDC and Clark locators in her acceptance message.

“I would like to thank CDC for inviting us here and congratulate them as well for this noble and kind gesture on their project “Brigada Eskwela 2022: Tugon sa Hamon ng Ligtas na Balik-Aral,” she said.

“On behalf of all the recipients, I extend my sincere gratitude to the benefactors for your thoughtful and generous donations. This is truly a big help to our schools especially to our learners. We wholeheartedly accept all the donations with a deep sense of gratitude,” she continued.
