A young Zamboangueño philanthropist continues to share blessings to less fortunate Zamboangueños in the city’s different depressed barangays.
Yesterday, John David Atilano-Corpin also known as JDC donated nine boxes loaded with school supplies for the Grade 1 pupils of Mampang Elementary School.
Notebooks, pencils, crayons and many others were formally turned over to Mampang Elementary School Principal Ms. Estrella Damiles yesterday morning with some Grade 1 teachers and some barangay officials witnessing the affair.

Damiles, who has been the principal of Mampang Elementary School for several years now, expressed elation after receiving the school supplies from JDC.
“This is the first time that the school received this kind of donation from a non-government personality. We are so thankful to JDC,” Damiles said.
Mampang Elementary School has more than 2, 500 pupils mostly belonging to indigent families.

Last week, four boxes of assorted medicines were donated by JDC to the Barangay Mampang Health Center.
According to JDC, his endeavor is being supported by members of his family and some well-being friends in Metro Manila.

Today, JDC is scheduled to visit Salaan Elementary School in the east coast where another set of school supplies will be donated by him.
“With the help of my friends in Manila, hopefully I can share the same thing to other public schools in the depressed areas in the city,” JDC said.
JDC, who is a member of the large Atilano clan in the city and the son of Atty. David Corpin, spent most of his childhood in Mampang. His family owns a little property in the place.
The young and good looking JDC finished his primary and secondary studies in the city and continued in Manila where he later landed a good job.
JDC said he owes what he is now to his parents who taught him to be very generous and a God-fearing person. — Jimmy Villaflores
