Car company Nissan Philippines Inc. (NPI) has just donated P110,000 to San Lorenzo Ruiz Home for the Elderly, an organization operated by the Little Sisters of the Poor.
The amount, gathered from different Nissan dealerships nationwide, will be used to support the daily needs of the residents and the maintenance of facilities.
The donation was handed by NPI president and managing director Antonio Zara to Sr. Cecilia Emmanuel, the home’s OIC for outreach activity and donation accounts.
This initiative took place as a form of outreach activity by NPI employees whose birthdates fall in the last quarter of the year.

Reaching out to San Lorenzo Ruiz community is a great start as we move towards solidifying our efforts to help more individuals, communities, and institutions.”
