“The heart that gives, gathers.”Tao Te Ching, a Chinese classic text traditionally credited to the 6th-century BC sage Lao Tzu or Lao-Tze. The text’s authorship, date of composition and date of compilation are debated.
Inspired by the desire to help communities, MPT South headed by its Communication and Stakeholder Management team chose to develop a donation corner for its recurring Corporate Social Responsibility programs. The program is called, Alagang Kapwa Oras Oras (A.K.O). Donations will be thematic per month and specific divisions of the company will be the head for each theme. There will be a month for Medicines Donation, Gift Giving, Emergency Response Donations, and Back to School. The donated items will be given to a specific host community.
For June, with The Technology Management Division and Operations Management Divisions as its head, the theme is “Back to School” and MPTS employees are encouraged to donate school supplies. Everyone is excited to give their share and with that, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the following donors:
- Technology Management Division
- CAVITEX Toll Operations
- Cecille H. Bagat, Corporate Finance
- Rommy B. Agcaoili, Security Operations
- Ella A. Francisco, Operations Management
- Tamara O. Bautista, Document Control System
- Dhale D. Santos, Asset Management
- Ericka C. Dungo, Integrated Communication
- Ruby J. Bravo, Accounting
- Lulu G. Canlas, Human Resources and Administration
- Vilma Cabintoy, SESI
ManCom also decided to donate 15 tablets to deserving students at our host communities’ schools.
It is evident that even during these times, our hearts are eager to be of help and to share the blessings that we have. This all-year-round donation drive will help many people and may contribute to ease the worries of many families.
Every donation that comes from the heart is much appreciated. It is true that when blessings are shared, the joy it brings is doubled. This is just the launch of the program, and everybody looks forward to more blessings this could share with our stakeholders.
