To commemorate their anniversary, officers and personnel of Aguila Auto Glass planted 250 Narra tree seedlings in a one-hectare area inside La Mesa Eco Park.

Today is indeed special as we celebrate our togetherness and plant seeds for our future…together, one UGCI family for each other and our fellow Filipinos,” said Pia Borromeo, marketing manager of Aguila Auto Glass.
