Painter of the day: Robredo volunteers for school renovation
Vice President Leni Robredo is no stranger to volunteer work.
Robredo sought to give back to her community by helping with the renovation of a public school in her home province of Camarines Sur. In photos shared on Facebook, the veep was seen helping paint a classroom at the Iquin Elementary School in Canaman, Camarines Sur.
“Brigada Eskuwela 2019. Our 3rd. We have been participating as an office in this noble activity of having the entire community come together in helping repair and prepare our public schools for the coming schoolyear,” she said.
She said 25 volunteers from the Office of the Vice President worked with the community in helping repair the public school.
“It was a challenge to go there and even more difficult to transport all the needed materials needed for the repair of the school. But this inspiring and committed bunch did not mind the difficulties. They became carpenters, painters, cleaners under the sun and rain,” she said.
