The Society of Philippine Entertainment Editors (SPEEd) recently concluded its annual outreach program, SPEEd Outreach 2024, bringing aid and joy to residents in Nueva Ecija and Aurora.

Led by its president Salve Asis (Pilipino Star Ngayon and Pang Masa), SPEEd officials and members visited Nampicuan, Nueva Ecija, and Dingalan, Aurora on April 4 and 5. The group provided cash donations to a parish in Nampicuan and a barangay in Dingalan.

SPEEd was not alone in this endeavor. Beautéderm Corporation, led by Rhea Anicoche-Tan, and long-time SPEEd supporter Unilab provided valuable assistance.

In Nampicuan, SPEEd partnered with the Immaculate Conception Parish Church, Diocesan Shrine of the Holy Face of Jesus, to conduct a dental mission for the youth. Spearheaded by Parochial Vicar and Head of the Promotion Committee of the church, Fr. Renz Valente, Dr. Rex Gaculais, and a team of volunteers provided free dental services to around 100 students and residents.
