Giving back to the community

WHILE delivering the needed information down to the grassroots level, SunStar Davao has not forgotten its commitment to give back to the community through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to create positive social impact.

SunStar Davao, the leading community content provider in both print and online in Davao region, maintained that in doing the business, it is best to also help the community it is serving.

“SunStar Davao is not only committed to provide information to the public through its stories, photos, and videos. But it also seeks to give back to the community where it is in,” SunStar Davao Editor-in-Chief Reuel John Lumawag said.

For 24 years, the company has initiated different activities that allows it to give back to the community in anyway it can, be it small or big.

On July 24, as part of its celebration of the 20th anniversary of SunStar Super Balita, the employees conducted a feeding program to the students of Manuel L. Quezon Elementary School, which is just within the neigborhood SunStar Davao is in. The company also gave out food and t-shirts to the trisikad drivers. By these simple gestures, it has brought a smile to our neighbors.

The company is not alone in its CSR initiatives as it also partners with other institutions to give back to the community.

In July SunStar Davao joined San Miguel Brewery's Trees Brew Life at Sta. Cruz Davao del Sur. The company is one with other green warriors in protecting and conserving the environment.

From breaking the news, SunStar Davao also broke the barrier of distance by going to the farflung areas in Marilog District Davao City for the Brigada Skwela program. The employees gave school supplies and relief assistance to the children.

"In the past years, we have been conducting and participating in various CSR activities. These activities range from tree planting to participating in Brigada Eskwela,” Lumawag said.

He added, “It is through these activities that we go beyond our duties as chroniclers of the community's stories.”
