Alturas Group of Companies (AGC), through its Marcela Foundation, Inc., continues its drive of helping our less fortunate brothers, this time a P50,000 donation intended to augment the relief operations for the hapless Taal Volcano victims, channelled through the “Tabang Taal” fund drive launched by the Bohol Chronicle and radio station DYRD.
As the residents around the vicinity of the erupting volcano continue to suffer scarcity of foods and water, AGC immediately jumped into the bandwagon of donors conducting a Bayanihan outreach this time outside the province of Bohol.
“It’s one act of kindness that transcends boundaries or borders…” said Ariel Fullido of the Corporate Marketing of AGC after the cash donation was received at DYRD last Monday, January 27.
Last January 2, AGC just donated another P100,000 to “Inyong Alagad” of DYRD, as financial assistance to the helpless folks who turn to the said radio station to seek help for urgent or emergency cases like hospitalization and medicine purchases. The P100,000 check was turned-over to the said station and received by the Bohol Chonicle Radio Corp. chair Peter Dejaresco.
The Alturas Group of Companies has to date allocated hundreds of thousands of pesos to DYRD’s “Inyong Alagad” and “Tagbilaran-By-Night”, as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility.
