Jolly Toy Scouts Unite to Clean Up Books and Toys for Jollibee’s Maaga Ang Pasko

I like reading heart-warming stories like these. May this one serve as an inspiration for all of us to share more of our time and resources with others this Christmas.

Press Release:

Hundreds of Jolly Toy Scouts recently gathered to clean up thousands of books and toys donated in this year’s Maaga ang Pasko spearheaded by Jollibee. The volunteers trooped to Jollibee’s Clean-Up Hub in Mandaluyong City to help out in the sorting, washing and cleaning of gifts to make sure that the books and toys reach their beneficiaries in mint condition. 

Partner schools and companies sent their volunteer students and employees who eagerly took part in the activity. Jollibee was also present to entertain the volunteers and assist in the clean-up. 

“It’s our first time as Jolly Toy Scouts to volunteer in the clean-up and we really enjoyed it knowing that we can help out in our own little way,” shared 16-year-old Zade Mari of Escuela de Sto. Rosario in Pasig City, who participated in the activity together with her schoolmates. 

“Taking part in today’s activity had been really fun. It’s overwhelming to see these many toys because it means a lot of kids will be happy this Christmas. Jollibee’s participation also made our tasks more enjoyable,” said Joseph Lee of Massive Gaming, one of Maaga ang Pasko’s partner companies.

Jollibee’s own employees from the regional business units (RBU) also came in full force to assist in the cleaning. “This is a very fulfilling activity because it gives us an opportunity to involve everyone, including employees who are not in the stores, to share whatever goodwill that Maaga ang Pasko brings. It makes us happy knowing that we have done something meaningful this Christmas,” expressed Jollibee’s Regional Business Head for South Luzon Bambi Bejo.

All books and toys collected and cleaned will be distributed to beneficiaries in Metro Manila, Bacolod, General Santos City, Tarlac and Calamba. This year is the 18th year of Jollibee Maaga ang Pasko, the country’s biggest and longest-running book and toy collection drive.
