SOS CHILDREN AND YOUTH EMPOWERED BY YELLOW CAB THROUGH FOOTBALL
Last November 11, 2017, Yellow Cab in partnership with local football club Kaya FC, through the Yellow Cab Football Cup, donated one hundred thousand pesos and football equipment to SOS Children’s Villages Philippines along with other chosen charities.
This year’s football cup was a 2-Day Tournament where various teams from all over the country were invited to play. Yellow Cab advocated children’s rights for play by bringing together kids ages 7-19 years old to compete in friendly matches, cultivating and fueling their passion for the game.
Mark De Joya, the Brand Development Director of Yellow Cab Pizza Co. says, “Our biggest belief is that true greatness comes from being truly hungry. Our goal is to teach hungry passionate youth of today’s generation that it is their hunger that is going to take them to the greatest heights. We are so thankful for partners like SOS Children’s Villages to help us achieve this mission.”
To date, through the Yellow Cab Football Clinics and Football Cups, they have trained 1,300 kids and have helped hundreds of children in need from different organizations including SOS Children’s Villages Philippines, Gawad Kalinga, and San Ildefonso Parish Makati.
Thanks to Yellow Cab Pizza Co. for inspiring the SOS children and youth through PLAY. Now, they have new and complete football equipment to fuel their football skills.
