Butuan police to donate school supplies to less-privileged children

Butuan City (5 June) -- Police personnel from this city's Police Office including its 5 stations will donate school supplies next week taking into priority the less privileged children in elementary schools in far flung barangays.

"This would be our first time to donate school supplies coming from our own pockets for humanitarian missions", said SPO1 Marifel Cortez of the Butuan City Police station 1.

The Program, dubbed as "Gamit Pang-eskwela, Alay ng Pulisya" will be launched simultaneously in different schools selected by 5 police stations on June 10.

It can be recalled that during the Civil Service eligibility exam conducted in April this year, Butuan City Police Office was able to collect thousands of pencils, ballpens, and erasers and pencil sharpeners donated by the examinees.

Likewise, examinees from the NAPOLCOM Police entrance Exam voluntarily gave their pencils to BCPO.

Seeing the necessity of students, police men and women also agreed voluntarily to contribute more by giving notebooks and other school supplies believing, that these would result in improving the school children's perceptions of policemen.

City Police Director Joseph Plaza hopes to sustain the program and encourage other organizations to support the cause in trying to make a better life for the people in far flung barangays.

"This is the best way to see and keep the people supporting the government and to gain cooperation at the same time improve the relation with the community in our campaign to curb criminality," he said. (Jocelyn E. Morano, dxBN-Radyo ng Bayan Butuan/PIA-Caraga) [top]
