GAPASCA thrives in giving back to the community

Welcome to the website for the GAPASCA. It is our hope, that through this website, we can share with you our goals and objectives and our joy in working towards meeting them. Navigating this site will not only introduce you to who we are and what we do, but it will also provide many opportunities available for you to help enhance our efforts.

Our members are blessed in different forms. The desire in our hearts is to give back to the community through volunteers, donations, community service and fostering higher education to enhance the quality of life of our underprivileged Kababayans. Whether you are a resident of Southern California or someone  who lives in a different part of the world and are from the City of Gapan or a current resident of our hometown, we invite you to join us.

On behalf of the members of GAPASCA, I look forward to getting to know you as you become involved in supporting our cause.
