Employees who have served 15 years and above were honored during the 83rd anniversary of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office in ceremonies led by Chairman Jose Jorge Corpuz and General Manager Alexander Balutan.
Held at the ground floor of Conservatory Building at Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City on October 25, the “Decades of Public Service” were divided into 15 years, 20 years and 25 years of dedicated service to the public.
In his speech, Chairman Corpuz congratulated the employees and encouraged them to continue serving the public and discharge their duties cheerfully. He added that he is glad to work along with this kind of people for charity, especially with President Rodrigo Duterte’s directive to stop corruption in government and hasten the transaction process in all agencies.
GM Balutan, on the other hand, expressed his admiration for all those who received awards for their commendable efforts in assisting people in need of financial support for their health and medication.
“It is my hope and desire that your charitable endeavors continue to strengthen PCSO’s mission and vision in providing assistance especially those in unfortunate situations but still want to continue to enjoy the blessings of life,” he said.
He added that Filipino people, regardless of political or religious affiliation or geographical location, can ask for PCSO’s assistance anytime as the agency is directly under the supervision of the Office of the President.
