The Filipino Channel (TFC) conducted its first foreclosure prevention seminar at its office in Redwood City.
The seminar, called Project: Bigay Pag-Asa (Give Hope), was the first activity under ABS-CBN International’s corporate initiative that responds to the rise of foreclosures and job losses affecting many Filipinos in the US.
“The project was triggered by a letter from a TFC subscriber who asked help from us regarding his foreclosure problem,” said Chinky de Jesus, ABSCBN International managing director.
“We were touched by the trust our subscribers have placed on TFC to help them with their financial problems even if we’re not a financial establishment.” Volunteering their services were Jojo and Maricel Quiroz, hosts of “Pera Ko, Pera Mo” on TFC and founders of Keyrose Corporation, a financial wellness center; Chito Desuasido, CEO of GDE Holdings Inc. and project manager of Bay Area Mabuhay Alliance; and Milky Lagandaon, real estate mortgage America One Finance in California.
John Lazatin, ABS-CBN International’s head of media events and production group, facilitated the seminar. Attendees also enjoyed the raffle prizes that were given away during the event.
“The success of Project Bigay Pag-Asa propels us to do more proactive corporate initiatives in the service of the Filipino community during these trying times,” De Jesus said
