Ateneo-Anvil Book Fair To Generate Funds For Sick Children At DMC
The book fair which is being held at the Ateneo de Davao Grade School from August 26 to 29 not only highlights the celebration of the Buwan ng Wika but is also aimed at raising funds for sick children hospitalized at the Davao Medical Center.
"This is the first time we are holding a book fair as part of the Buwan ng Wika and also the first time that we have chosen Kythe Child Life Program as our beneficiary," Ateneo Filipino area head Flordeliza Deloria told Datelinedavao.
Deloria said a percentage of the proceeds of the Book Fair, which features the Lola Basyang Series of Anvil Publishing will go to the Foundation. Dubbed as "Aklat Ko, Buhay Mo", the fund-raising program seeks to help all child patients at the DMC and not just those who have cancer.
Aside from the Book Fair, Anvil has also conducted Story Telling Activities for the Ateneo Pre-schoolers and grade school students.
