Travel + Leisure Co. donates to Pampanga orphanage

CLARK FREEPORT – Travel + Leisure Co. Global Support Services (Philippines) Inc. continues to support its local community by donating much-needed supplies to the Reception and Study Center for Children (RSCC) in Lubao town.

The RSCC is a 24-hour facility that provides protection and rehabilitation services through temporary residential care to homeless and exploited children, and those with special needs, such as children at risk and children who need alternative family care.

Employees at Travel + Leisure Co. Philippines office, organized a donation drive to collect baby and children’s clothes, toys, blankets, baby food, diapers, sugar, cooking oil, trays of eggs, and hygiene items.

“We believe in giving back to the community and we’re pleased to support the RSCC for the second time,” said Liam Crawley, President of Travel + Leisure Co. Philippines. “We appreciate all of our employees coming together, gathering donations, and making it a memorable day for the children.”

The office’s employees and leadership team, including Crawley; Debbie Sowden, Vice President for Consumer Finance – Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific; and Gloria Llamas, Director of Operations of Travel + Leisure Co. Philippines spent the day with the children, playing games, singing, dancing, and sharing food and loot bags.

The RSCC currently cares for 78 children including babies and toddlers, and the number continues to increase as the facility’s social workers rescue children from trafficking, exploitation, and abandonment.

“The support from private donors like Travel + Leisure Co. Philippines is a big help for the facility, our staff, and especially the children. The help they receive inspires the children to believe in a brighter future and to have hope,” said Lucrecia Cruz, Center Head of RSCC.
