Don Antonio O. Floirendo, Sr. Foundation continues to strengthen its scholarship program as it welcomes 70 new scholars for the school year 2012-2013.
On its 11th year of providing scholarship grants to dependents of employees of the ANFLOCOR Group of Companies, the Floirendo Foundation now has a total number of 169 scholars under its program. “The Floirendo Foundation is very happy that the number of scholars is growing year on year,” said Russell U. Barrizo, Programs Director for the foundation, which is the corporate social responsibility arm of the ANFLOCOR Group of Companies.
Barrizo said the main thrust of this scholarship program is to assist the employees of the ANFLOCOR Group of Companies in giving their dependent children the best realm of education.
“This is one way of thanking the employees of the ANFLOCOR Group of Companies for their dedicated service and commitment. As they are the principal resource of the organization, the company wants to provide them opportunities for their own growth and the growth of their families as well,” Barrizo said. The Floirendo Foundation College Scholarship Program was established in 2005. To date, 19 scholars have graduated from the program and most of them are now employed in the ANFLOCOR Group of Companies.
