A TOTAL of 64 used notebooks and 77 old books were already collected by the City Human Resource and Management Office (CHRMO) through the “Project Notebook.”
The “Project Notebook” is aimed to recycle used books and notebooks.
CHRMO head Dr. Jane Bascar said the initiative is in line with Mayor Ma Isabelle Climaco-Salazar’s priority agenda on education with the ultimate goal of giving the young generation a better future.
Bascar said the beneficiaries of the Project Notebook will be the job order employee and street sweepers with children of school age.
Bascar said the used books will be donated to the school children through the City Schools Division Office.
Under the project, Bascar said each local government employee is required to recycle used notebooks by removing unused sheets, compile and saw the pages together.
She said the employees are to fix/repair the torn pages or cover for the used books. Pencils and crayons are also accepted.
All these donations are to be dropped in a donation box placed at the main entrance of City Hall, Bascar said. (Bong Garcia)
