Mayor James “Bong” Gordon. Jr. donated P500,000.00 to the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC), Olongapo City Chapter during the Flag Raising Ceremony of government employees on March 16, 2009.

“We need to raise an annual budget for our chapter to sustain the efficient delivery of services to indigents who usually seek transport services and blood requirements. Libre ang dugo pero may minimal fee para sa collecting and processing of safe and quality whole blood. Dito napupunta ang pondo na ibinibigay ng mga donors, kasama na rin ang mga libreng first aid trainings na isinasagawa namin sa mga barangay,” shares PNRC Olongapo Chapter Administrator Eduardo Buena, Jr. “Marami pa ang matutulungan natin dahil sa city aid na ibinigay ni Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr.,” he added.

Being a non-government organization (NGO), the PNRC does not receive any funding from the government. According to Buena, PNRC seeks monetary or in-kind donations from concerned individuals, private companies and local government units. Mayor Gordon has been consistently providing monetary assistance to support PNRC in its programs and services.

“PNRC Olongapo is tirelessly devoting their time to help alleviate the suffering of Olongapeños by subsidizing the cost of blood processing, in whole or in part. Sa tulong ng halagang ito ay masisiguro natin na hindi mauubos ang supply ng ligtas at kalidad na dugo para sa lahat, lalong lalo na sa mga indigent patients sa tuwing may mangangailangan,” said Gordon.

PNRC Olongapo Chapter Office is located at the Old Hospital Road, East Tapinac, Olongapo City. For inquiries, call (047) 222-2181. For emergency, dial 143.
