Relief drive in Davao continues; Dabawenyo students in Manila pitch in

by Prix D. Banzon

Davao City (2 October) -- The private and public sector-initiated relief drives in Davao continue as organizers called on all Dabawenyos to support the campaign to help fellow countrymen in typhoon stricken Metro Manila and Luzon areas. Davao kids studying in Manila also responded readily on the call for volunteer work.

Several establishments here stage drop off points where the public could bring there donations.

SM City Davao has set up a drop off area inside the mall since Monday that will accept donations either in kind or in cash as SM Foundation, Inc. through its "Operations Tulong Express" continues to distribute relief goods to the affected victims.

Debbie Go, SM regional operations manager for Mindanao said the same drop off point was also set up at SM City in Cagayan de Oro even as she said that the drive is done systemside.

The Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (DCCCII) is asking members of the Davao business community to help our kababayans who are still in dire need of aid after typhoon Ondoy's unexpected devastation.

Donors are encouraged to extend whatever support they can give. Ready-to-eat food, toiletries, towels, generic medicines and beddings will be very much appreciated.

For your donations, please deliver it to the DCCCII Office at 2F Chamber Building, JP Laurel Avenue, Davao City. Please do not hesitate to contact the DCCCII Professional Management Team at telephone numbers (082) 221-4148 or 305-1423 and look for Ms. Majal L. Cossid or Ms. Janice A. Langcamon.

Also the office of a local newspaper here is designated as receiving area for donations as Sun.Star Davao located at Granland Building, R. Castillo Street, Agdao this city opens its door to accept the donations. Their sales office at the ground floor, Door 2, Krister Twin Alley Arcade, Ponciano Reyes Street in Davao City will also receive donations. Interested donors may call 082 235-1004 to 07, 235-1009 and 227-9971.

Television networks here also are into the gathering of donations as both ABS CBN and GMA are actively soliciting the support of the Dabawenyos for donations.

Meanwhile many of the Davao kids now studying in Manila are actively working as volunteers in relief and distribution of goods for typhoon victims and these are students who are mostly enrolled at Ateneo de Manila University, University of the Philippines and De LaSalle University.

Two of the Davao boys were among the four who came to Ateneo gym in Katipunan to start repacking relief goods on Sunday evening until midnight and they were joined the succeeding days and nights by fellow students when donations from ADMU alumni and other donors started coming in.

"This would only shows that wherever they are they have that true spirit of being Dabawenyo," one parent commented in Facebook.

The Davao boys also helped in the relief distribution and clean up in the Pasig area. (PIA) [top]
