Chubb is a firm believer that positive contributions to the fabric of our communities return long-lasting benefits to society, our employees and our company.
Since 2012, the Regional ‘Day of Service’ has been annual event for employees in Asia Pacific to engage in a diverse range of local community projects which align with Chubb’s overarching philanthropic support for improving education and health, alleviating poverty and saving the environment. The participating countries include Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Every year, over 1,000 employees across Asia Pacific bring to life some 20 meaningful projects through active volunteerism.
Chubb Foundation – International, in coordination with Philippines Business for Social Progress (PBSP) and Department of Education (DepEd), recently handed over two disaster-resilient school buildings to school officials of the Typhoon Haiyan – torn Bancal Elementary School in Carles, Iloilo.
Built to withstand disaster with new chairs and new desks, the school now has six new classrooms with space for 270 students and six teachers.
Starter kits were also given to each student with supplies that they needed. More than that, the new buildings are safe and provide a clean place for the children of the town of Carles, Iloilo to study, learn, make friends and imagine a better future.
The hand-over ceremony of the schools was attended by the Mayor of Carles, Iloilo, Hon. Seigfredo Betita, DepEd Official Lynie Chavez, PBSP Director for Education Marylin Muncada and other two town officials.

Super Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Visayas Region in November 2013, prompting the Chubb staff to dedicate their ‘Day of Service’ efforts towards the local relief work.
On 15 November, the staff volunteers spent a day at the Department of Social Welfare and Development – National Resource Operations Center packing essential items for the victims affected by catastrophe.
On October 19, 2012, Chubb staff focused on child development through its TEACHING LITTLE MINDS TO GROW theme. In line with Chubb’ partnership with Asociacion de Damas Filipinas, Chubb Ph employees extended their helping hands by donating carpet tiles as well as conducting a make-over of the children’s playroom.
Other activities include teaching young children on values and environmental awareness as part of an on-going campaign to promote respect for fellowmen and the environment at an early age.
Staff spent the day at Asociacion De Damas De Filipinas, a shelter for children aged from 6 months to 10 years in need of special care. Employees emphasized the need to protect the environment by leading interactive lectures, arts and crafts activities and tree planting. Chubb also donated 10 computers to the shelters.
