Fortune Life Insurance Company, Inc., (Fortune Life), through its Values Advocacy Program in partnership with the Department of Education and Marylindbert International, donated 1,000 Big Books entitled, “Amb. Antonio L. Cabangon Chua, a 21st Century Hero,” to La Union Schools Division.
Fortune Life Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Emma M. Abad and Marylindbert International Vice President for Operations Jonathan Pauig led the turnover of big books to La Union Schools Division Superintendent Atty. Donato D. Balderas, Jr. and Asst.
