Volunteers in Action

In response to the recent calamity, Philippine Business Bank cancelled its bankwide 2013 Christmas Party in empathy to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. The Bank Management decided that part of the budget intended for the said salary will be donated for the Yolanda Victims.

On December 14, 2013, said plan was put into reality. Volunteerism spirit spread in the air when the volunteer-employees of Philippine Business Bank and AMY Foundation gathered at the open grounds of the Northern Rizal Yorklin School in Caloocan. A total of 1,000 pails containing blankets, mosquito nets, bath towels and dinnerware sets were packed by more than 200 volunteers. These items will be sent out to Tacloban City for distribution to the affected families of Typhoon Yolanda within the area.
