Angel Brigade Gratitude Dinner



_angel brigade

Angel Brigade was formed last year when typhoon Ondoy hit the Philipines. It was formed to help those who were affected. Donations were gathered from generous donors and volunteers were mobilized to help – pack relief goods and even deliver them in the flooded areas.

Last year runners were given the opportunity to lend a hand. After the training runs, we would share our time to pack relief goods for delivery. These were tiring but happy nights for us runners.

It feels like Christmas in October after packing relief goods! Angels again volunteered for a medical mission in Angono Rizal. We were blessed to have runner doctors with us, who were ever willing to share their expertise. A total of 300 hundred patients from the Tent City and nearby barangays were served.

After a year, Angel Brigade volunteers has grown from 20 to 1,200. A gratitude dinner and exhibit was hosted in thanksgiving. Great food were served: Assembly Line of gourmet cocktails from Cibo during the opening night. The exhibit showcased the different photos of the volunteer opportunities since Angel Brigade started. There are also auctioned products to raise funds for future projects.

Our favorite among the yummy cocktails served during dinner - made from barquillos and cream cheese!

I have been doing volunteer works for group but it was only that night that I was able to meet Tisha Bautista personally. She founded Angel Brigade family. Thank you Tisha for sharing your time and talent for others.
