Officials and employees in this city started a drive to help flood victims in Metro Manila and several provinces in Luzon, who remained submerged in floods for the past days due to heavy rains spawned by enhanced southwest monsoon.
Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog asked all departments and offices of City Hall to donate used clothings and other useful non-perishable goods for the flood victims.
“We are extending our help to them just as some of them also helped Iloilo City when it was hit by typhoon Frank in 2008,” Mayor Mabilog said.
A memorandum order was circulated Thursday signed by city administrator Norlito Bautista appealing for donations.
The city government will place donation boxes in all floors of the building, even as departments are encouraged to have boxes in their respective offices.
