Leading food and beverage kiosk operator, Fruitas Holdings, Inc. (FHI), listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange under the symbol FRUIT, has donated Php100,000 cash and Php100,000 worth of goods including water and juices to the municipality of Taal. The residents of Taal were affected by the major ashfall brought about the Taal volcano eruption.
“It has been always our mission to give back to the community and help our countrymen in times of need” said FHI President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Lester Yu. “Since our listing on the PSE, we are more empowered to provide meaningful service to Filipinos” he added.
The mayor of the heritage town of Taal, Hon. Pong Mercado, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Fruitas for generously contributing towards the repair of rehabilitation of the community.
Fruitas had also donated 200 boxes of Fruitas bottled water last January 14 and 15 for the displaced individuals and families from the volcanic disaster. Bottled water was disseminated through the help of ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya and GMA Kapuso Foundation, the company’s partners for this endeavour.
These latest initiatives form part of the Touched by Fruitas program, which also community feeding, scholarship grants, basketball clinics, and local community support. The growth of the company has enhanced its ability to extend service and give back to Filipinos.
