FTC Group of Companies Sends Love to Magsaysay

Christmas has always been at the core of every Filipino family tradition. It is the best time of the year for families to gather and spend some joyous time together at home. But this season may be different for some, particularly those earthquake-stricken in Magsaysay, Davao del Sur and in various areas in Mindanao, who have lost their homes and have camped out in tents these last few months.

To uplift their Christmas spirit, FTC Group of Companies Corporation (FTC-GOCC), a Davao-based company that operates diverse businesses from commercial, retail, hospitality, medical and fitness facilities to real estate, turned over in-kind donations from its management, employees, partners, and patrons for the benefit of the affected families in Magsaysay, Davao del Sur.

The handover ceremony was held on December 18, 2019, at Aeon Towers showroom along J.P. Laurel Avenue, Bajada in Davao City. Magsaysay Municipal Kagawad Allan Carampatana received the donations on behalf of the municipality of Magsaysay.  

“These times have been challenging for all of us with the series of recent earthquakes that hit Mindanao. We at FTC Group of Companies Corporation are one with the people of Mindanao in praying for everyone’s safety and well-being. We have proven our resilience in the past for unfortunate events, similarly, we will rise above the recent ones in time,” said Jonna Serafin, Vice President-HR, Training & Quality Assurance of FTC GOCC, during the event.

A Day of Giving

Carampatana shared how hard it has been for them because of the four strong earthquakes that hit their barangays in Magsaysay.

“We executed force evacuation to more than 1,500 families after that first strong earthquake we experienced in October. Now we are maximizing all our resources available in the evacuation center,” Kagawad Carampatana further noted.

He also expressed gratitude on behalf of the municipality to the FTC Group for extending help through the donations handed over to him.

“Our fears should not stop us from going on with our lives, to be cheerful, and to feel the spirit of Christmas. We hope that our gift to you this Christmas will help bring some smiles despite unfortunate events. We want your community to know that we are all here for you,” Aeon Luxe Properties Marketing Communications Director Almira Mariano said in a message to the beneficiaries.
