February 10, 2017 – In an early celebration of Valentine’s Day, FPJ’s AngProbinsyano star Coco Martin paid a visit to GRACES Home for the Elderly, behind SM North Edsa. 

In a short address to the gathered elderly folk, numbering about 200 male and female residents, Coco related how he always held a special place in his heart for the elderly, and related an endearing anecdote about his own grandmother, which was greeted by cheers and applause by the audience. The residents were overjoyed at Coco’s visit, as well as grateful for his gifts and donations and were quick to take pictures with the star. Many of the elderly simply took the opportunity to embrace Coco to express their affection and gratitude.

Coco then paid a visit to the wards, distributing goods such as pillows and diapers to the immobilized patients therein, taking opportunities to speak with the residents to impart caring words to them.

A sizable donation of diapers, pillows, hygiene items and medicine was presented to the institution and AngProbinsyano goodies were distributed to the gathered elderly, along with food and drinks.
