PNP encourages members to donate to 'Pablo' victims instead


MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) said it is cancelling its Christmas parties, ordering its members to donate to the victims of Typhoon “Pablo.”

PNP chief Director General Nicanor Bartolome ordered the scrapping of parties after several Malacañang offices also announced that their parties would not push through this year, according to PNP spokesman Chief Supt Generoso Cerbo said.

“Christmas is sharing and with that, the chief PNP directed all unit commanders to share whatever savings generated by the cancellation to the relief efforts for the calamity victims,” Cerbo said in a statement. – Rappler.com
