The Ateneo de Zamboanga University Campus Ministry Office (AdZU CMO) successfully launched the AdZU Christmas Love Drive on September 23, 2019 at the BC Lobby.
The Christmas Love Drive is a yearly event spearheaded by the CMO that aims to spread the Christmas spirit of gift-giving to the less fortunate in Zamboanga City. The theme, “Pagbabahaginan: Ang Siyang Tunay na Diwa ng Pasko”, fully captures the essence of the holiday season.
“We would like to invite the community to share their blessings and live out the spirit of Christmas with love and generosity,” said Paul Miole, CMO director, in his appeal to the attendees during the short program of the Love Drive launch.
Bro Jeff Pioquinto SJ, Basic Education Coordinator for Formation, in his talk, emphasized that generosity is “sacrificial in nature”.
