Feeding Program For Underprivileged Kids

Pope Francis' visit has taught us how to be more compassionate to others. We're so thankful for reminding us that we have a loving and merciful Father.

Goldilocks Bakeshop, in cooperation with Caritas Manila, capped off a six-month feeding program for underprivileged kids with a small celebration. The culminating activity was conducted at the gym of the St. John Bosco Parish-Tondo, which coincided with the commemoration of the saint’s 200th birth anniversary.
