We’ve also been a proud partner to ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya over the years and we continue to support their many programs in the country,” said Gutierrez.

“Let me say from the bottom of my heart that the people of JPMorgan Chase are truly involved in community development and environmental initiatives. Maraming maraming salamat sa inyong patuloy na pagsuporta sa aming foundation. Mabuhay ang JPMorgan Chase & Co!” Afan exclaimed.
