The contribution was turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) regional command center at the DPWH 2DEO Planning Warehouse in Washington Drive, Legazpi City.

The donation will supply relief packs for families affected by continuing activity of the Mayon Volcano, which remains under Alert Level 3. Many residents in the 6-kilometer permanent danger zone remain in evacuation centers as the unrest persists. 

Through this donation, Globe is not only strengthening its role in supporting disaster response but also helping facilitate a more centralized relief operation led by the DSWD. This strategic alignment with government efforts will ensure the efficient and effective delivery of assistance to those in need.
