Gift Giving in Dansolihon,Corrales Elementary School and Brgy. Calaanan, CDOC



The CU-NSTP conducted its annual gift giving activity last December 17, 2016 on three selected barangays in Cagayan de Oro City namely, Dansolihon, Barangay 22 (Corrales), and Calaanan. These three barangays were chosen and recommended by Ms. Rachel Polestico of the CUREXO office.

The three activities which happened on the same date were headed each by the NSTP office’s faculty members. The office Head, Dr. Amor Mendoza, and her students headed to Barangay Calaanan bringing with them foods and gift donations from the NSTP students; Ms. Andrea Caneos, NSTP coordinator, and her students, on the other hand, carried by the CU bus, went to Barangay Dansolihon,. Last but not the least, Mr. Ruel Gallares, NSTP Paraprofessional, and his students went to Corrales Elementary School to give joy and gifts to the children of Barangay 22.

The three activities all ended at noon time. Thankfully, every child present in each area were given gifts and were able to participate in the games. They also enjoyed the food that the NSTP students have prepared for them. The barangay leaders were very thankful for the help that the CU-NSTP have given to their people.

Gift Giving  to the Mambatangan Farmers


Last April 8, 2017, after the Recollection Activity of the CU faculty and staff, a gift giving activity was held headed by the NSTP office head, Dr. Amor Y. Mendoza.

The gifts that the Mambatangan farmers received were donations from the CU-NSTP students during the School year 2016-2017. The said gifts were actually relief goods in the form of canned goods, rice, noodles, used clothing and other old kitchen utensils including plastic wares and glass wares.

The CU-NSTP office originally had the idea of accepting relief goods in CU after the great urban flooding in our City last January 2017, because the office saw the great need of those families who were greatly affected by the flood. The goods were supposed to be given to the victims of the recent flooding but during the first week of announcement, only few have donated and the goods were not enough to feed a number of people. This explains why, instead of giving the relief goods to the flood victims who are nowhere to be found now, the NSTP office, with the help of Mr. Gilbert Dungog and Sister Divine of the Campus Ministry, thought of giving relief to the poor Mambatangan Farmers of Cagayan de Oro City.

During the gift giving, all CU faculty and staff present during the recollection helped in the distribution of the goods to selected Mambatangan farmers.

Indeed, the activity was not only fun but heart warming after seeing the joyful smiles of those people whom we were able to help, even in a small way.
