PCSO satellite office coming in Tagum with minimum P80T per day purse for kawanggawa

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) will be establishing soon a satellite office in Davao del Norte, bringing a purse for charity or kawanggawa worth not less than P80,000 per day for the needy people.

PCSO Branch Manager for Davao Region Atty. Joy Rama said in an interview said that the PCSO management earmarked a total charity fund of some P11 million per month for the four provinces in Davao Region including Compostela Valley.

Of the monthly amount, Davao del Norte has been getting a share not less than P80,000 per day or an average of P100,000 per day for the province’s needy people who asked for PCSO charity.

The usual allowable charity fund for a PCSO satellite office, Branch B,  with 8 personnel, is P1.5 million per month, said PCSO lottery operations officer Gina Castillo.

Davao del Norte would have a Branch B office category, while Davao City being a big city has a Branch A office category, with 15 personnel and having bigger charity fund per day, she added.

Atty. Rama also said the satellite office is a way of bringing PCSO closer to the people during the time President PNoy administration.

She added that Davao del Norte was approved by the PCSO management to be first given a satellite office considering its volume of Lotto sales and the greater number of people needing charity.

Approved to also have a PCSO satellite office soon is Davao Oriental.

“Compostela Valley will also be having one eventually, but they can avail charity from incoming Tagum office while they still have no PCSO satellite office,” she said.   

She met with Governor Rodolfo del Rosario and mayors in Davao del Norte Tuesday at Tahanan ng Gobernador in Tagum City  last Tuesday to bare the PCSO’s good news.
