CALLING ALL HEROES: PP NEEDS YOUR HELP

"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." - Frank D. Roosevelt



A message from PP West Covina/Ontario TL DAN PASAMONTE:
"Helping out someone and giving someone a chance doesn't cost all the time. I'm pretty sure your kids have some used books, toys, or clothing they don't use anymore. Can you imagine how many lives will be touched and how many kids will be given a chance to at least learn how to read? Can you imagine how it feels when you know you helped someone without reaching in your pocket? The feeling..... PRICELESS!!!"

PUSONG PINOY is calling all HEROES! We need your help in reaching out to disadvantaged children in the Philippines - one book, one meal, one piece of clothing at a time. Today, we begin by collecting books, toys, and clothing but perhaps someday we can do more.

CHILDREN'S BOOKS
We collect gently-used children's storybooks, picture books, and chapter books from preschool to 4th grade level. We are not collecting reference books or textbooks at this time.

Please make sure there are no tears, rips, scribbles or doodles on pages. Why? Because we want to encourage kids to enjoy reading with no distractions on the pages. We also want to make sure that our recipients know that we care enough to give them books in good condition. Email us at pusongpinoyorg@gmail.com for pickup or dropoff information.

BIRTHDAY BLOWOUT * FEEDING PROGRAM
Celebrate your birthday or a special occasion with Pusong Pinoy.  The children at one of our recipients' location will celebrate your birthday or special occasion in a grand way. They will give you the greatest gift ever - the joy and laughter of children removed from bitter poverty and enjoying a wonderful luncheon, games, prizes, and a whole lot more!
