The PJ Lhuillier Foundation, Inc. and its Metro Manila scholars
On February 14, PJ Lhuillier Foundation, Inc. (PJLFI) proved that Valentine’s Day is not just about couples but it is a celebration of love in all forms. PJLFI and its Metro Manila scholars spread love among the lolos and lolas of the Golden Reception and Action Centers for the Elderly and Other Special Cases (GRACES).
This annual Valentine activity brought joy and revived the youthful days of the senior citizens of GRACES as the team gave out roses and gifts while serenading them with wonderful love songs. It was an afternoon full of entertainment, sweet treats, gift-giving, raffles, sumptuous snacks and broad smiles from everyone.
GRACES, a project of DSWD, was launched last year. Located in Quezon City, it houses a total of 133 elders, almost sixty percent of which are bed-ridden.
