Hello Friends and Supporters of Kalipunan,                                                                      


It has been years now that Kalipunan has been actively participating and getting involve in local events ranging from volunteering before and or during an events, to name a few, Sto Nino Festival by  Fil-Am of the QC held  in Davenport IA,  Hope at Brickhouse recital,  John Deere Classic in Moline, IL , GoRed for Women (by American Heart Association)  in Davenport, IA and Saints Feast Day in Clinton, IA.  

Kalipunan also gave out donations to help community locally and in the Phillippines. 

Locally, Kalipunan have  been offering lunches to the Habitat for Humanity builders approximately once month while the Midwest winter temperature is still tolerable.  Early this year,  Kalipunan donated goods to Kings Harvest shelter during the severe winter storm where local homeless peoples’ lives were threatened.   Towards the middle of this year, Kalipunan donated to the flood victims in the Quad Cities through Salvation Army.

Kalipunan have been helping out a selected school during a given year as a beneficiary through the organization’s  feeding program.  This year, the chosen school is Hubangon Elementary School in Camiguin Island,  Philippines.  Kalipunan provide meals to grade schoolers -  one grade level a week, comprised of two classrooms.   Cost of meal is $0.60 (P30.00 approx) a child.  Kalipunan serves nutritious meal to the children. 


On behalf of Kalipunan, I would like to thank every single one  who have donated whether they are in a form of cash, time,  household items and etc.    Thank you for  letting Kalipunan give a helping hand to the community locally and abroad where there is poverty, scarcity of goods  and services.  Because of you, we live in a better world.



Sarah Smith

Kalipunan President, 2019 – 2020
