A good number of medical and dental volunteers as well as lawyers took part in this endeavor as a result of the active and tireless efforts of the School Administration’s teaching and non-teaching personnel in the solicitation of medicines as well as cash donations for this purpose. It is good to note that the  donors and volunteers are alumni and alumnae of Divine Word College of Urdaneta.
