APO General Santos donates wall clock, garbage drums to city terminal

By Romy Martin

General Santos City (31 October) -- The Alpha Phi Omega International Service Fraternity and Sorority of General Santos City donated a wall clock and three garbage drums to Bulaong City Terminal on October 27, 2006.

In his acceptance speech, terminal Officer-In-Charge Isaias Garcia welcomed the donations saying the wall clock and garbage drums will benefit passengers and other users of the terminal.

APO brother Lemuel Espinosa, Regional Administrative Director of APO Region XII, in his welcome address said the donation is part of service to community programs of APO.

APO has four fold programs, namely, Service to Fraternity, Service to Community, Service to Country, and Service to God.

Shortly after the turnover rites, more than 30 APO regular members led neophytes from Holy Trinity College and General Santos Foundation, Inc. College in Oplan Pulot Basura and Blood Pressure Check Up right at the city terminal.

The free Blood Pressure Check Up project benefited 75 passengers and terminal users.

Oplan Pulot Basura is APO-Gensan's expression of support to Kagandahan Gensan Project of the City Government of General Santos. It was launched in April 2005 together with the Blood Pressure Check Up project administered by nursing student - members from nursing schools in the city.

APO-Gensan has already conducted 16 garbage collection activities in four barangays of the city and benefited more than 500 residents with its free blood pressure check ups.

APO brothers Amrauzi Macalangcom and Rogelio Sinco said these numbers will grow as "we sustain the twin projects as regular requirements for APO neophytes." (APO/PIA SarGen) [top]
