The spirit of Christmas is all about the spirit of giving.
“For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat;
I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink;
I was a stranger, and you invited Me in;
naked, and you clothed Me;
I was sick, and you visited Me;
I was in prison, and you came to Me.
…Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine,
even the least of them,
you did it to Me.”
[The Gospel of Matthew 25:35-36,40 NAS95]
Marie France Gives Back:

The initiative was led by the company’s management and a team of 15 in-house doctors who supervised volunteers in the different medical stations.
Over 500 residents were able to receive free medical consultations, comprehensive check-ups, medicines and vitamins. Pasig City Mayor Bobby C. Eusebio also dropped by the event to show his support for the project. Sponsors include: Servier Phils.
