BOC-Davao donates P195-T to typhoon victims

DAVAO CITY, Dec. 17 (PNA) — The Bureau of Customs (BOC) in Davao has cancelled its annual Christmas party celebration to use its supposed budget in helping thousands of victims of super typhoon Pablo.

BOC-Davao district collector Martiniano Bangcoy said they have generated at least P195,000 cash from their 150 employees who voluntarily shelled out their personal money to help the typhoon victims.

Bangcoy said aside from the cash assistance, 30 cartons of sardines from their sub-port in General Santos City was donated.

“We already handed over the cash and goods to Sagip Kapamilya of the ABS-CBN-Davao reporter Elric Ayop last Friday ,” Bangcoy said.

Last week, employees of the regional office of the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC) led by their chief labor arbiter Elbert Restauro conducted a relief mission in Monkayo town in Compostela Valley as their way to celebrate Christmas party.

“We distributed 130 food packs to victims there,” Restauro said in an interview.

Earlier, Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario and other provincial employees distributed 1,500 food packs to affected residents of Barangay Naboc in Monkayo while another 1,000 food packs were turned over to Compostela Valley first district Rep. Maricar Zamora-Apsay for affected families in Compostela town.

Del Rosario then proceeded to New Bataan to turn over 1,000 food packs to Mayor Lorenzo Balbin Jr. (PNA)
