PIA Press Release

Butuan police donates school supplies in farflung barangays

by Jocelyn E. Morano

Butuan City (10 June) -- "This is the first time that the men and women in uniform of Butuan City Police Office reached out to school children by donating school supplies taking into priority those who have little or no school supplies due to poverty", said Station 1 Commander Police Supt. Joseph Boquiren.

The Butuan City Police Office with its 5 police stations simultaneously conducted in their respective areas of responsibility the Back to School Program with a theme: "Gamit Pang Eskwela, Alay ng Pulisya."

Station 1 lead by Police Supt. Boquiren and Women and Children Desk Chief SPO1 Marifel Cortez gave the boys and girls of pre-school and grades 1 to 6 of Maug Elementary School various school supplies including writing notebooks, pencils, writing pads and pencil sharpeners as part of their humanitarian efforts.

The school supplies were donated by examinees from this year's Civil Service exam and Police Entrance exam conducted by the National Police Commission and police personnel of BCPO.

In his message, Police Supt. Joseph Boquiren said, "The education of these small children is very important for the future of the country. The parents who are here have one priority and that is the needs of their children. When we show them that we care for their children, the same as we would our own, it means more to them than any other thing we could give them."

On the other hand, SPO1 Marifel Cortez of the Women and Children desk who conceptualize the idea expressed hope that the Back to School Program will be sustained in the coming years and police personnel continue to make a small contribution out of their own meagre salary.
