CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY — In an impassioned speech, Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) President and General Manager Ronald lauded the police in their service to the country at the Maging Magiting Campaign flag turnover at Police Regional Office (PRO) 10, Camp Alagar, August 8.
“Kayo ang totoong magiting. Iniaalay ng mga kasamahan ninyo ang kanilang buhay para sa bayan,” he said. (“You are the ones who are truly noble and patriotic. Some of your peers have even laid down their lives for the country.”)
In partnership with Ayala Foundation, Philippine National Police, Department of Education, and the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), the Maging Magiting Campaign aims to distribute 6,000 flags to police precincts and public schools nationwide this year.
This is part of Chooks-to-Go/BAVI’s advocacy of loving our country through sheer fulfillment of one’s duty, and even through sports. Chooks-to-Go is a long-time supporter of Filipino athletes.
Previously the Maging Magiting campaign went to Batangas, Bulacan, Bacolod, Iloilo, Davao, Butuan, Taguig, and Quezon City. More than 5,000 flags have so far been donated.
In Cagayan de Oro, more than a hundred police officers and staff were in attendance, led by Police Lieutenant Colonel James Espinosa, OIC for PRO 10. Chooks-to-Go’s head of operations in Mindanao, Carlos Pelayo Jr., accompanied Mascariñas.
According to Cel Amores, Ayala Foundation Senior Director for Corporate Communications, the campaign addresses the lack of standard-type flags flown in public offices. This is done in partnership with NHCP, which also ensures propriety in everything to do with Philippine national emblems.
