Davao Light employees bleed for Red Cross

Davao City (10 July) -- More than providing efficient and affordable electric power to its francise area, the Aboitiz-owned electric utility. Davao Light & Power Co. looks into ways of helping people in the community covered by its power distribution business in times or life-and-death situation.

The company goes beyond supporting efforts to improve the quality of education by donating school buildings, computers, providing scholarships and skills training.

It does not stop at enhancing primary health program by giving surgical instruments to service providers, by adding capacity to community water systems, and doing medical amd demtal outreach; or supporting local government units in implementing development programs. Davao Light also leads its employees in volunteer activities like mass blood donation to help the Red Cross cater to requests from the community.

This year, the blood donation activity by employees conducted last Saturday, July 5, was in support to the Philippine National Red Cross- Davao City Chapter's Blood Donors' month celebration. Despite a Saturday schedule and being a working day, and most regular blood donors among employees were either on out-of-town assignments or having pre-scheduled activities, 60 came to the blood letting site at the canteen space of the company's C. Bangoy office. They all wanted to give at least 500 cc of their blood. However, only 42 qualified to donate including a non-Davao Light employee (fron neighbor firm PLDT) and spouse of a Davao Light lineman supervisor. The rest were politely turned down by Red Cross doctors for certain reasons. Their intention, through, was fully appreciated.

Those who donated blood are the following:

Vice president for Engineering Rodiger Velasco, Asst. Vice Presidents Reynold B. Felix, Eduardo P. Tan, and Ronald Chan, Marcelo Migue, Ryan Varona, Gary Leo Querequincia, Ruby Jane Pascual, Christopher Zose, Eli Lugatiman, Adriano Po, Arfel Francisco, Charito Deniea, Reynaldo Zapanta, Ruel Acasio, John mark Balane, Russel Bolivar, Michael Buhian, (Panabo Branch messeger), Daniel CAbigon, Jerry L. Cano, Richard Daradar, Jerome Ryan Delenio, Edmund Eumague, Richmond Roy Fajardo, Juvenar Gallogo Jaspar Gelacio; Vincent Ubas, Benjamin, Genovea, Joseph Gumia, Teddy Hernandez, Lemuel Lacsamana, Erwin Lagumbay, Kenneth Lim, Adrian Faustin L. Lumba, Antonio Manatas, Farly marces, Jay Cesar Ocubillo, Jarvey Mar Panes, Ernesto Villaba Jr., and Roelito Yap, the non Davao Light employees are Reymond Balbin of nearby PLDT, and Letty Marces wife of Lineman supervisor Farley marces.

The mass blood donations was jointly initiated by the Community Relations Department and the Quality and Human Resource Department of Davao Light in support to the Labor-Management Council (LMC) program of the company. (DLPC/PIA) [top]
