One Meralco Foundation is determined to bring the light of hope to underserved communities within and beyond the Meralco franchise area, carrying out CEDC’s dream to make the future brighter for the Filipino people.
In 2016, CEDC employees had another opportunity to get personally involved and contribute to a meaningful social change in the environment through the organization’s tree planting activity at Bacolor, Pampanga.
