Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) continues to take an active interest in the welfare of its community with another donation of an Isuzu D-Max to the country’s leading humanitarian organization, the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Laguna Chapter.
The official turnover was led by IPC Assistant Vice President for Administration, David Yandoc, and Sales Division Head, Joseph Bautista on October 27 in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Present to accept the donation were Sta. Rosa Mayor Arlene Arcillas, PRC Secretary General, Elizabeth S. Zaballa, and PRC Chapter Administrator Laguna Chapter, Frank Gray M. Sorromero.
IPC recognizes the increased need for Red Cross to respond in this challenging time, as the pandemic persists and continues to affect vulnerable families. As such, banking on the versatility and reliability of its pickup, IPC donates 1 Isuzu D-Max. This vehicle will ensure that Red Cross will be where they need to be, no matter how difficult the road condition is. Be it an off-road or flooded area.
This is Isuzu’s third vehicle donation to PRC. In January 2020, Isuzu supported PRC’s rescue and relief operations for those affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano by donating 1 Isuzu D-Max 4×4. The following year, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Isuzu partnered again with PRC by donating one Isuzu NKR 71 food truck. Equipped with a complete mini kitchen, the food truck helps PRC Laguna Chapter actively distribute hot meals into areas affected by quarantines and restrictions.
In the acceptance message, Chairman of Board of Directors-PRC Laguna Chapter, Director Jaime B. Ching, recognized IPC for its trust and support to Philippine Red Cross Laguna Chapter. He acknowledged IPC as their partner in making their work more efficient and effective. A plaque of appreciation was also awarded to IPC for its contribution and unselfish support to the endeavors of the PRC-Laguna Chapter.
