On February 15, the Sustainability Vanguards conducted a relief drive for the displaced families of the recent Taal Volcano eruption in Laurel, Batangas, one of the neighboring towns in Taal Lake severely affected by the volcanic unrest.
A team of ten employee volunteers headed to Laurel to personally turn over a multitude of items to aid in the day-to-day lives of the 748 families still residing in the evacuation center of Laurel. These donations were acquired from a two-week donation drive conducted by the DFNN Group across three offices in the Philippines. Donations include boxes of food, clothing, hygiene items and diapers for proper distribution to the evacuees.
As of February 12, 2020, there are still 4,442 families being sheltered in various evacuation centers in the province of Batangas.
