Going around the pandemic restrictions via a digital campaign, the 7-Eleven Christmas Virtual Run for a Cause 2020 culminated with the donation of 40,000 care packages to various local government units all over the Philippines. Each care package contained grocery items worth P500, which amounted to a total value of P20M.
