BELIEVING that a healthy community helps build a robust economy, Flash Express has reached out to some local government units in the metropolis to extend medical assistance to their respective communities.
As part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) thrust, the fastest-growing logistics and courier service company in the Philippines paid a courtesy call with Pasig City Vice Mayor Robert Vincent Jude “Dodot” B. Jaworski Jr. early this month.
In support of the city’s health and wellness programs, Flash Express donated more than 265,000 pairs of medical supplies covering all barangays within the locality.
The firm, likewise, discussed its intention to back up the city’s business programs for the benefit of micro, small and medium enterprises, especially the online sellers.
On the same day, it also visited the health workers in Barrio Obrero Health Center in Manila. Multiple sets of medical supplies were also handed over to them.
Both cities are now fully recovering from the ensuing health crisis. Amid the resurgence of their local economies, following the resumption of business activities, the city governments of Pasig and Manila cannot afford to be complacent of the improving pandemic situation.
Hence, they continue to partner with the private sector to enhance their healthcare services to their constituents. Not only that they constantly guard against the recurrence of coronavirus infection, but also keep on getting rid of other illnesses and health risks that also require ample attention.
Apart from conducting a series of medical mission and donation, Flash Express also held various outreach programs to the different communities and government organizations.
Late last month, for instance, the company reached out to the community of Tondo, Manila and gave sets of goods and clothes to different family beneficiaries living near its warehouse.
Flash Express Marketing Deputy Director AR Polinar said that they do not only commit to provide delivery service to Filipinos but also serves as an organization that provides care to its host communities.
“We launched ‘Alagang Flash’ with the core message of ‘Tagapag-hatid ng Serbisyong may Kalinga’ to send the message across our community, including our employees, government organizations, clients’ business partners and customers that our organization is their partner not only through Flash Express› delivery services but also as their partner in nation-building through our CSR programs,” he explained.
ACCORDING to Flash Express Public Relations & Partnerships Manager Reginald Rex Pumihic, the company has been conducting CSR activities for the past two years since its inception in the Philippines. The firm had to reinforce its CSR campaigns through “Alagang Flash.”
“Since Flash Express serves a lot of communities, we want to centralize all our programs in order to bring our CSR efforts closer to these communities. We have set different CSR activities targeted to every community of Flash Express involving our employees, business partners, clients, partner-foundations and government organizations,” he said.
During its first year of operations in the country, the company has already made several CSR efforts to contribute to the community. To name a few, Rated K “tsinelas” donation drive, ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya’s Tulong-Tulong sa Pagbangon, and various medical missions and disaster responses to the community and its employees during calamities.
