US-Phil Marines repaint MPCC

Posted on 09/05/2010 in General News & Events

Through the assistance of the Springboard Foundation, ten marines from the USS George Washington (CVN 73) and ten of their counterparts in the Philippine Navy repainted the MPCC home last September 5, 2010.

Along with some US Embassy staff and Springboard Foundation members, this community relations project between the US Embassy Club (USEC) and Virlanie gave a welcome coat of fresh paint to the children’s bedrooms and common areas (dining area, reception area and front gate).

“We are so grateful to the marines, Springboard Foundation and USEC for giving the kids a bright, clean atmosphere in which to live—MPCC looks so much better,” exclaimed Precilla Mendoza, Program Head for Temporary Homes.

Despite the heat and humidity, the group of twenty marines, USEC and Springboard Foundation staff worked tirelessly with laughter and camaraderie. The repainting lasted from 8:30 in the morning to 2:30 in the afternoon.

Sharing with Virlanie’s vision of empowering children, Chairman and Founder of Springboard Foundation Annette Helbig said, “We are happy to be able to improve the life quality of children at Virlanie and promote intercultural cooperation and exchange in the process.”

Children in MPCC now have a more colorful home. Maraming salamat to Springboard Foundation, USEC, the USS George Washington (CVN 73) marines and the Philippine Navy for helping us give back the smile to children in MPCC.
