City Hall workers asked to donate relief goods


The more than 3,000 Mandaue City employees will be divided into 10 groups as part of the city’s efforts to donate relief goods to typhoon Pablo victims in Mindanao and Central Visayas.

Each group will pool their resources to come up with relief goods to be donated to the affected residents.

“May they be casual, regular, and contractual or job order employees, they will be included in the giving of pack donations,” said lawyer Jamaal James Calipayan, Mayor Jonas Cortes’ executive secretary.

memo

Calipayan said that a memorandum was already sent to various departments in City Hall informing them of the 2:3:2 donation.

The 2:3:2 refers to two kilos of rice, three packs of instant noodles and two canned goods for donation.

There are 3,353 employees in Mandaue City.

Aside from the donation packs, City Hall cancelled its Christmas party for employees and will donate the cash savings for typhoon victims.

A proposal to donate the cash is still pending at the City Council. Calipayan said the amount is at least P250,000.

Mayor Cortes, who will be lighting the city’s Christmas tree this Saturday, also canceled the Christmas village projects of the different departments.

little sacrifice

“This would be a little sacrifice from the employees, but we are expecting that each group of ten will not just be giving one pack,” Calipayan said.

The city government aims to donate at least 500 relief packs from the employee groups.

On December 17, Cortes will lead department heads, barangay captains and city officials to visit the 6.5 relocation site in barangay Paknaan, Mandaue City to hold a party for settlers there.

The families will work hand in hand with the volunteers including the officials to build their houses.

lapu cops

Meanwhile, the Lapu-Lapu City police has also set aside personal funds to buy goods for the victims of typhoon Pablo.

Senior Supt. Rey Lyndon Lawas, Lapu-Lapu City police chief, said they would set aside used clothing, rice, canned goods, noodles, kitchen utensils, blankets, and mats for the victims.

Lawas said that they keep their Christmas party simple as a show of sympathy for the victims.
