Jollibee honors exemplary families


Jollibee remains steadfast in honoring exemplary families — whose values resonate in their communities through their selfless initiatives — in the 9th Jollibee Family Values Awards. Their inspiring stories and advocacies again took front and center during the Gabi ng Parangal para sa Pamilyang Pilipino held at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria in Ortigas.

Since its inception in 2011, the Jollibee Family Values Awards continues to seek noteworthy families who embody a strong sense of duty for others to emulate. In photo (from left) Ruth Angeles, Jollibee vice president of
