Proceeds of this year’s Coloring Lives exhibit will benefit the Kanlungan ni Maria Home for the Aged, a home to poor, abandoned, neglected, homeless and sick elderly in Antipolo. The residents of Kanlungan ni Maria have no immediate family and relatives to look after them. The Coloring Lives exhibit in Oct. 2019 also benefited a home for the elderly, the San Lorenzo Ruiz Home for the Elderly in Pasay City.
The exhibit runs online at www.sunshineplaceph.com/coloring-lives-online-exhibit and at the 2nd floor of Sunshine Place: Senior Recreation Center until Nov. 16.
