(SEPT. 23)—After its successful fundraising event in August, the UP Junior Finance Association (UP-JFA) re-launched the donation drive “Project Sukli” this September to help the UP-Philcoa jeepney drivers gravely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In its Sept. 6 Facebook page post, UP-JFA said funds raised for Project Sukli will be used to buy relief packs for the beneficiaries comprising rice, canned goods and other essentials per pack.
The student organization’s initial goal was to raise P10,000 to help the first batch of beneficiaries. The excess cash raised will be used to help other areas where there are UP jeepney drivers.
JFA will accept donations until Sept. 30.
Interested parties may donate cash through deposit or online bank transfer to Micolai Kate T. Odronia (BDO Account No: 000900181249 | GCASH: 09173333294).
