Maraming Salamat!

Dear Mr. Mayor,

Greetings from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde!

By now you may have heard from our Dean of the School of Deaf Education and Applied Studies, Ms. Nicky Perez, regarding the U$1,000 donation which the De La Salle Alumni Association of Northern California earmarked for our Deaf students.

I would like to add my own words of appreciation for this generous donation. Truth to tell, I was very pleasantly surprised when Br. Kenneth handed me the check, especially since it was totally unexpected.

Dean Nicky may have already told you how your donation came at a time when it was badly needed, since some of our Deaf students were planning to stop their schooling due to lack of funds for transportation and other basic needs. The lifeline that they received through the alumni’s donation is indeed very welcome. As I told Dean Nicky, this was truly God’s Providence at work.

Thank you once again. May the Lord bless all of you for your generosity!

In Saints La Salle and Benilde,

Br. Victor Franco, FSC
