Happiness does not result from what we get, but from what we give. The CatSU President Dr. Patrick Alain T. Azanza once again met with the Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA), this time with a twist. Instead of receiving a favor they pooled their meager resources to be able to give back to the institution they have been working for years.
The President was surprised by the cash donations and even moved to tears by the TODA’s act. He said it reminded him of the Parable of the Widow’s Offering, “When we give until it bleeds, that is when we show how much we truly care.” That was what the tricycle drivers exactly did. President Azanza said the TODA wanted to give back to CatSU for all the favors they received amidst the pandemic. They appreciated everything that CatSU gave them during the pandemic and in return they want to support the institution’s advocacies in their small way.
President Azanza admitted that he could hardly speak as he was on the verge of tears but still managed to thank TODA for the sincere gesture of giving back to CatSU.
The President also mentioned that he was reminded of the CatSU Alumni and Retirees who recently reached out to him and pledged to support the projects of the present administration for the communities. “It feels good knowing that we are willing to lend a helping hand for the community.” he said. Indeed, every good deed that is nobly done is always paid.#JFrias
