The proceeds have since helped HCPI provide support for hospitals in Laguna. The company recently donated personal protective equipment (PPE) and food packs to The Medical City South Luzon and New Sinai MDI Hospital in Santa Rosa, and to Global Care Medical Center in Canlubang.

Throughout the recent enhanced community quarantine period, HCPI also provided vehicles to these hospitals as well as to Unihealth-Southwoods Hospital and Medical Center and Perpetual Help Medical Center in Biñan, Global Care Medical Center in Cabuyao, and Carmona Hospital and Medical Center in Carmona.
