To allow families to generate their own crops, Chevron also turned over gardening kits to the parents of selected students of Hulo Elementary School through the Rotary Club of Mandaluyong-Pasig-San Juan (RC ManPaSan)’s “Yaman sa Hardin Kontra COVID-19” project. The organization also equipped the beneficiaries with the basics of planting and will soon be organizing a school contest on vegetable cultivation to sustain the initiative.
