As a perennial partner and advocate of blood drive programs, mobile service innovator Sun Cellular has received the “Gawad Mapag-unlak” Award from the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC) Blood Center during its recent 14th year awarding and recognition ceremonies held recently in Quezon City.
“Beyond the usual mobile services that we offer our customers, Sun Cellular has always been keen on promoting a culture of service and volunteerism among its employees,” shares Reuben Pangan, official spokesman of Sun Cellular.
“For the past years, this culture of service has translated to several employee volunteer programs like blood donation drives, which have been primarily supporting the pediatric cancer patients and beneficiaries of the PCMC,” he adds.
According to PCMC Pediatric Blood Center Assistant Head Sonny Domasian, Sun Cellular was able to bring in over a hundred employee volunteers for 2012, and this has substantially increased the blood bank’s network of donors and contributed a considerable supply of viable blood for its regular beneficiaries.
“Sun Cellular has always been supportive of our advocacy and we are grateful that they have been continually choosing the PCMC to be the recipient of their company-wide blood drive programs,” shares Domasian.
Sun Cellular is a member of the PLDT Group.
