Central Luzon teachers generate P4.7M in donations for Odette-hit areas
A fund drive organized by the Department of Education (DepEd) in Central Luzon has generated P4.79 million in donations for the benefit of affected DepEd personnel in hard-hit areas of Super Typhoon Odette.
The amount is the highest among those generated by non-affected DepEd regions, according to DepEd Office of the Assistant Secretary for Field Operations Malcolm Garma.
The Regional Fund Drive mobilized the associations of education officials, principals, teachers, and office personnel to send voluntary financial contributions to help DepEd personnel in Regions 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and Caraga.
The donations were facilitated by the Central Luzon Association of Schools Superintendents (CLASS), DepEd National Employees’ Union (NEU) Region III Chapter, Philippine Elementary Schools Principals Association (PESPA) Region III, Philippine Secondary Schools Principals Association (PSSPA) Region III Chapter, and the DepEd Regional Office III.
For the complete breakdown of the donations made, the report may be accessed at the DepEd Region III website region3.deped.gov.ph.
