Responding to the needs of the Typhoon Lawin victims, the Pangasinan State University— Bayambang Campus through the BSBA Department held Tulong Pantao at the Day Care Center of Brgy. Bani, Bayambang, Pangasinan on Dec. 2, 2016.

Pisalamatan ko met ya balbaleg so saray estudyante na PSU ta apaliket yo ray ugugaw ed sayan hygiene kit [I would like to profusely thank PSU for choosing Barangay Bani as a recipient of your aid. I also would like to equally thank the PSU students as they have put a smile to the faces of the children because of these hygiene kits],” Mr. Rodelito Bautista, the barangay captain, said.
Prior to the distribution of the hygiene kits, the BSBA students entertained the daycare pupils, parents, and barangay officials with intermission numbers and parlor games.
