Embracing Gratitude: LPU Cavite’s Tradition of Thankful Giving

Last December 20, 2023, a heartwarming tradition of gratitude unfolded at Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU) Cavite campus. In a beautiful display of appreciation, the institution organized a Thankful Giving event, marking the occasion by distributing food packs to 146 indispensable personnel comprising custodians, security guards, gardeners, and janitors.

Acknowledging the dedication and often overlooked contributions of these essential personnel, LPU Cavite aimed to honor their unwavering commitment to maintaining the campus’s cleanliness, safety, and overall upkeep. The event was not only an expression of gratitude but also a reminder of the value each individual brings to the university community.

The act of giving back was a reflection of LPU Cavite’s core values, emphasizing compassion, inclusivity, and a sense of unity. It showcased the institution’s commitment to fostering a culture of appreciation and recognition for the invaluable role played by every member of the campus workforce.

The food packs distributed during the event were carefully curated to provide nourishment and bring a festive cheer during the holiday season. Each package was a symbol of appreciation, acknowledging the dedication and hard work of these personnel, whose efforts often go unnoticed.

The atmosphere during the event was one of joy and appreciation, as smiles lit up the faces of the recipients. The genuine gratitude expressed by both the beneficiaries and the organizers

highlighted the significance of such gestures, not just in material value but in the emotional connection forged between the university and its essential personnel.

The Thankful Giving event encapsulated the spirit of the season – a time for giving, sharing, and acknowledging the often-unseen heroes within our communities. It reinforced the belief that acts of kindness, no matter how small, have the power to make a profound impact and create a more inclusive and appreciative environment.

As LPU Cavite continues to uphold its commitment to community engagement and social responsibility, the Thankful Giving tradition stands as a testament to the institution’s dedication to fostering a culture of appreciation and gratitude.

In the coming years, it is hoped that this tradition of Thankful Giving will not only persist but also inspire others to recognize and honor the unsung heroes in their respective communities, thereby spreading the ripple of gratitude and kindness far and wide.
