Jollibee Fetes Maaga ang Pasko Partners


Leading fastfood chain Jollibee fetes its partners in the highly successful campaign Jollibee Maaga ang Pasko last
year at the Grand Ballroom of the Intercontinental Hotel in Makati which was attended by 77 partners who volunteered
and actively participated in the program. These include 39 partner schools in Metro Manila, 13 provincial schools
and 25 partner companies. A total of 141,800 Jolly Toys Scouts signed up to lead the efforts in collecting or
cleaning the toy and book donations – almost ten times more than the previous number of volunteers. Photos L/R: TAYLOR SWIFT
