PUSO ng USC, a year-long, gift-sharing event organized by the Philippine Junior Jaycees – USC Chapter (USC-JJC), marked its fifth year of creating positive change on Saturday, July 25.
In cooperation with other similarly-oriented student organizations and individual volunteers from the university, USC-JJC culminatedPUSO ng USC over two school beneficiaries this year: Ramon Duterte Memorial National High School (RDNHS) and Napo Elementary School of Sapangdaku, Cebu City. The schools at which the events were held were carefully chosen and publicly announced as beneficiaries on the USC Junior Jaycees’ Facebook page weeks prior to the said activities.
During the two-day event, students from elementary and high school levels of Napo and RDNHS, respectively, including some who were not students at said schools, were kindled with joy and excitement as parlor games and a number of physical and social activities, prepared by the organizers, engulfed the program.
USC-JJC, alongside individual volunteers and other USC-SO’s, the Supreme Student Counciland a few administrators from the university, reached RDNHS on July 18 and handed out packages of learning materials; all of which were equally partitioned with a number of notebooks, writing papers, ballpoint pens, pencils and erasers, sharpeners, plastic envelopes and other school supplies. These packages, obtained through earmarked sponsorships and student donations, were likewise distributed over Napo Elementary School the week after.
Reaching over five hundred students in 2014 and around a thousand this year, the event, which has been supporting fellow Cebuanos in charity for five years now, endeavors to impart the gift of education to even more, particularly to those who are needy and less fortunate, in the years to come.
As throughout the year, USC-JJC and all the other SO’s in the university intend to undertake more events that similarly impact the society, a positive change in this seemingly dire world.
