(For posting. Thank you.)

The University is embracing a specific humanitarian initiative,
conceived/started by the Philippine Toy Library, to collect and send* toys
(for newborns to 14-year old children) and school supplies (pencils,
notebooks, school supplies, etc. for elementary and high school
students)*to Zamboanga City for the use of the many thousands of
children and
students adversely affected by the strife there.

The Ateneo community is urged to join many others donate such toys and
school supplies. Drop (balikbayan) boxes shall be placed in designated
areas in the University's various campuses for depositing/collecting these
items. Initial stations on the Loyola Heights campus are at the JVP Office
(third floor, Bellarmine Hall) and at the School of Government at the
Social Development Complex. Once filled, the boxes will be picked up by
Philippine Toy Library and delivered to Zamboanga.

Cash donations for defraying costs of transportation and shipping of these
items may also be made directly to Philippine Toy Library. You may email
info at toylibraryph.com or call it at (0915) 941-0995 for the mechanics of
making cash donations.

Thank you for your anticipated generous support for this effort.

Jaime G. Hofileña
VP for Social Development
