PCCF Walks for the Poor and Donates $15,000 to ANCOP!
Celebrating its 15th year Anniversary, thousands of ANCOP Walk participants took over the streets of downtown Toronto to raise awareness and funds to support the less fortunate last August 19th, 2018. The volunteers and officers of the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation (PCCF) were proud to be among the participants who walked for the poor!
A donation of $15,000 was presented to Ricky Cuenca on behalf of ANCOP Canada to support and uplift the lives of the needy. Led byPCCF President Romy Rafael, EVP Rosemer Enverga, PCCF Executives Lita & Tony Leano, Mario Alpuerto, Danio & Nhitz Penuliar, Rebecca Rafael, Fe & Jojo Taduran, Amelia Arcillo, Marita Enriquez and the 2018 Pageant Entourage: Samantha Sarmiento-Little Miss Philippines Canada, Alexa Grant-Miss Teen Philippines Canada, Ranielle Macapagal-Miss Philippines Canada, Elvira Ortiz-Mrs. Philippines Canada, Joseph Sucion-Little Mr. Philippines Canada and runners-up Jacklynn Bowdery, Sophia Sambrana and Jasmine Jade Browne; the PCCF group fulfilled its promise to support ANCOP and its mission.
After the recent completion of the ANCOP Village in Tala, Caloocan, Philippines which is now home to 33 families impacted by Leprosy, PCCF is set to start a building a new ANCOP Village in 2019. “The Tala Village and Multipurpose Hall was what my husband, the late Senator Tobias Enverga always envisioned… surely, he is smiling down at us now! So it is truly humbling to be able to present this cheque so we can start building a new village!” said Rosemer Enverga during the presentation.
PCCF through its advocacies and through events like the prestigious Miss Philippines Canada, Little Miss Philippines Canada, Mrs. Philippines Canada and Miss Teen Philippines pageants and the yearly and the biggest indoor Filipino gathering in North America, the Pinoy Fiesta and Trade Show sa Toronto is able to support worthy causes like ANCOP. “Let’s build more houses for the poor!” said Romy Rafael.
