Judy C. Castillo
Quota International of Mandaue, Cebu, Philippines
Judy C. Castillo, immediate past president of Quota International of Mandaue, has always unselfishly offered the facilities of International Pharmaceuticals, Incorporated (IPI), a corporation of her husband’s family which he heads as President and CEO. The club has free use of the IPI Sports Clubhouse for club meetings, fund-raising activities and special activities for our beneficiaries (the SPED children of the Mandaue City Central School). The company’s coaster or van is at our disposal to ferry the children from school to IPI clubhouse and back. We are privileged to use it as well when the club needs it during Discons or important activities where we can all ride in one transportation.
Since Judy joined QI-Mandaue, the family has been supporting the club. This was started by her late father-in-law, who sponsored Discon 2005 hosted by our club. A pack full of the company’s pharmaceutical products were given to every delegate. Today, her husband, Pio Castillo, Jr. continues to help in our advocacies. He may not be physically present in our club projects, but his presence is felt in the goods we receive for our medical/dental mission, the tarpaulin signs we need for our campaigns and more. He has offered their condominium unit in Manila and the staffhouse in Davao City during Discons to ensure our comfortable accommodations. Cars and vans are available too for our convenience.
Behind all of these is Judy. She has facilitated everything in the service of Quota International ofMandaue. Now that I am Lt. Governor of District 41, she never fails to ask me what more she can do, particularly in lessening the expenses of the district. She has opened her home to DG Emilie Simon and DST Marot Fernandez during the governor’s visit. The IPI staffhouse in Davao City was the home of the district team during our visit there. A car and their staff were at our service too.
Judy knows fully well that her cup overflows with personal blessings but she concerns herself more with being a blessing to others. That is Judy C. Castillo – our Volunteer of the Year.
