AllHome Corp., the Villar Group’s listed retailer, said it spearheaded a project to donate school tablets to the Department of Education (DepEd) for the teachers of Las Piñas Science High School who would be facilitating online classes.
The project aims to help teachers provide quality education despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the company said.
“AllHome, through the help of our valued suppliers, took part in DepEd’s Adopt-a-School program which gives us, the private sector, an opportunity to become dynamic and strong partners towards the noble goal of educating all Filipinos,” Manuel B. Villar Jr., All Value chairman, said.
The project is under the company’s corporate social responsibility program called AllHome Builds, an initiative that aims to promote a sustainable lifestyle for all its stakeholders.
“AllHome’s resilient performance amid the pandemic as of the first half of 2020 made this effort possible. AllHome posted total revenues of P4.85 billion during the period, down only 4 percent from the same period last year despite the closure of stores during the enhanced community quarantine,” AllHome President Benjamarie Serrano said.
Through its CSR program, AllHome Builds, the country’s only full-line home center continues to fulfill its role in improving the lives of Filipinos nationwide.
The company currently has 46 stores nationwide with the recent opening AllHome at Santiago City, Isabela.
“With even big companies reeling from the effects of Covid-19, AllHome understands how the current situation affects Filipino families who are not equipped to adapt to these sudden changes, particularly those with children who are still in school. Thus, All Home would like to take part in bridging the gap between Filipino teachers and students who need access to technology in order to participate in distance learning programs,” the company said.
