Last January 22, 2011, twelve employees  and associates of Electronic Information Solutions Inc (EISI, Makati, Philippines) took time out of their busy schedules to volunteer for a worthy cause.  They came to organize, deliver and turn over books donated by UST Engineering Batch 1986 (USTEng86) to the Aklatang Panglungsod ng Dasmarinas (APD, Cavite).  The book donation was a silver jubilee activity of USTEng86 and was initiated by EISI Managing Director Reuel Avila, who is an alumnus of UST College of Engineering.

USTEng86 alumni were able to gather around 130 books which was labeled, sorted and boxed by EISI volunteers.  Aside from donating its own share of books, EISI likewise provided food and transportation for the volunteers and the several boxes of books.  More books will be solicited throughout 2011, for which EISI employees volunteer their services to prepare the donations and transport the books to the library.

The staff of  APD prepared a short program to mark the donation turnover ceremony.   A handful of kids from a nearby street children shelter were treated to a story-telling session conducted by Mrs. Grace Babol, EISI Area Representative.   On hand to receive the donations were City Councilor Hon. Jacinto B. Frani, Jr,  Ms. Vanessa Olaes, Officer-in-charge, APD, and Ms Sonia Gementiza, APD consultant.

APD is a priority project of Mayor Jennifer Barzaga with the cooperation of Congressman Elpidio F. Barzaga Jr. of the 4th District of  Cavite.  It provides an extensive collection of books, a children’s area, a theater, computer facilities and numerous community activities year round.  The donated books will be used in the library or disseminated in the various barangay reading center.

We are pleased to do our small part in promoting literacy in our country.

For this year’s company anniversary,  EISI Managing Director Reuel T. Avila  treated  the staff to a short break in the scenic town of Talisay in Batangas last September 3, 2010.  Food, games and a side trip capped the event, with Club Balai Isabel providing the perfect place for the activities. After indulging in sumptuous meals, frolicking in the lakeshore and indulging in numerous games and team-building activites,  the  comfortable overnight stay in the resort provided much relief for the whole day of activities for EISI employees! On their way home they visited the  Apolinario Mabini’s birthplace and residence, now a national shrine, in Tanauan.  Everyone was thankful for the treat and is looking forward to another fruitful year for the company and another memorable activity next year.
