Air Force Gives Back to Community

Air Force Reserve RM Lobaton, known to many as Coach RM, spearheads a school supply giving activity in collaboration with the 52nd Air Force Group Reserve – Iloilo City, Philippine Air Force Reserve – Boracay, and Tactical Operations Group 6 last May 25 in Dumangas, Iloilo. With the theme ‘Kids, The Little Sunshine’, the activity took place at the Paloc Sool Elementary School and benefited Paloc Sool student beneficiaries. Around 500 students, parents, and teachers were in attendance.



Supplies that were given include school essentials, one set of computer, and trash cans. Major Alben Natividad of the Philippine Air Force Reserve gave a free full scholarship at St. Anne College. It was a combination of two groups, 52nd Air Force Group Reserve led by the DGC Major Alben Natividad PAF and the Tactical Operations Group 6 by CMO 1LT Daryl Salve PAF representing Lt. Col. Dennis Alcarde PAF, GC TOG 6, PAC (MNSA), as well as sponsors that made the event possible.

“I am really lucky to have groups and friends who are willing to help students in need. Kahit unti-unti, pag ito’y ipinagtagpi tagpi, ito’y naging malaki at malakas. It proves that even small things can become big when you combine them,” says Coach RM “It is my privilege to serve.” adds the Dumangas native. Coach RM envisions to have another school supply giving activity next year. As an integrated coach, 20% of his profits are save for activities such as this.
