LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Elements of the La Trinidad Municipal Police Station–Traffic Management Branch and the Cordillera office of the Highway Patrol Group (HPG-CAR) were the lucky recipients of some 82 quality raincoats from Grab Taxi for their protection from the rain while performing their duties.
Angelica Serrano, Grab Taxi City Executive, said 52 raincoats were turned over to the HPG-CAR while 30 raincoats were given to the La Trinidad traffic policemen.
The donation of raincoats to traffic enforcers by Grab in their areas of operation is part of their corporate social responsibility to help guarantee the protection of traffic cops from exposure to the elements while on duty along the major streets maintaining the smooth flow of traffic even during the rainy days.
Serrano added Grab already made similar donations of raincoats to traffic enforcers in Tacloban City and other parts of Mindanao to show their uncompromising support to those who help motor vehicles and pedestrians by rightfully doing their assigned duties rain or shine.
Mayor Romeo Salda expressed his gratitude to the officials of Grab for the donated raincoats, saying that the provision of additional rain gears to the traffic enforcers will help them to perform their assigned duties and responsibilities beyond the standards even under the heat of the sun or heavy downpour.
Serrano said Grab will also make similar donations of raincoats to elements of the Baguio City Police Office–Traffic Management Branch (BCPO-TMB) anytime after the completion of their coordination with the concerned offices.
According to her, the donations of Grab to the traffic enforcers will be completed before the end of the rainy season for traffic enforcers to maximize the use of the raincoats during this rainy season so that the public will see the presence of law enforcers managing the traffic even during heavy rains.
Chief Inspector Benson Macliing, chief of the LTMPS, also expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Grab for considering the law enforcers in La Trinidad as one of the beneficiaries of their donation of raincoats, saying that the areas of operation of Grab are lucky considering the aggressive implementation of the company of their corporate social responsibility project and making sure the things they donate are useful in their operations.
Grab is currently operating in Baguio and La Trinidad catering to the transport needs of people.
Serrano appealed to residents and visitors to continue patronizing the services of Grab because the company provides passengers stress-free and convenient travel from their points of origin to their destinations around Baguio and La Trinidad, Benguet.
