EdOp extends service to Erya Kids through Share-Ya

Para sa kalidad na edukasyon, samahan kaming umaksyon!
         The Education Operations (EdOp) Committee extended its service beyond academic assistance through Share-Ya, a fundraiser and donation drive in partnership with the Office of the Finance Officer (OFO) for Erya Kids, the public elementary school sector of Ateneo Gabay.

         In its second year, Share-Ya raised ₱ 47,477.30 to buy school supplies and groceries for pupils from Industrial Valley Elementary School and Holy Spirit Elementary School. Income was generated by selling t-shirts boasting designs related to quality education and direct monetary donations.

         Share-Ya began as a donation drive last year to help Erya Kids and their families recover from the onslaught of the pandemic and typhoon Ulysses. It also serves to further assist the sector while Erya Insertions, weekly math and English tutorial sessions, are on an indefinite halt until onsite classes return.

         This year's project was made possible by the core team and overseers namely My Arce, Ambross Sumaylo, Reyna Bautista, Allyn Alvarez, Gail Paras, Ivory Doble, Claudio Armengol, Lex Cabulisan, Lizette Abibuag, Kaye Avila, Neil Cinco, Krisha Cagunot, Ron Cantera, Joshua Tirana, Pearline Bayog, and Precious Nicolas.

         The fundraiser ran from October 4 to 27 and utilized Shopee, Google Forms, GCash, and bank transfers as platforms.
