Tuesday, January 8, 2013
CAMP BADO DANGWA, Benguet – Members of the Police Regional Office- Cordillera (Procor) produced a total of P628,800 in cash donations to the victims of Typhoon Pablo who are mostly from Visayas and Mindanao areas.
Procor Director Benjamin Magalong handed over P423,800 to DSWD Regional Director Leonardo Reynoso during the celebration of the 19th Philippine National Police Ethics Day held in the regional police command.
The donation is from the one-day salary deduction from all police commissioned officers and from the voluntary contribution of the non-commissioned police officers and non-uniformed personnel of the regional police office.
Moreover, the amount donated is expected to be used in the construction of shelters of the typhoon victims in Mindanao.
Magalong suggested the houses to be constructed should have markings like “PNP Procor,” to denote the shelters were funded through donations from personnel of Procor.
On December 2012, P205,000 was already forwarded to National Head Quarters, Camp Crame in Quezon City as a mandatory contribution of all police personnel of Procor as mandated by the directive of the Philippine National Police (PNP)Chief that each personnel should donate P50.
The Procor personnel extend their sympathies and prayers to the communities, which were damaged by the past typhoons. (Rubyloida Bitog)
