SLRP Starts Its PPCRV Volunteer Recruitment
Dateline Feb 20 - The PPC began preparations for its involvement in the forthcoming May 2010 elections with a call for volunteers for its Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV). In all masses last weekend, including the area mass at Cruz Compound, registration lists were placed in the church entrance for parishioners to sign up for PPCRV volunteer work. In line with the parish's thrust of ensuring an honest, orderly and peaceful election, the PPC is taking its watchdog mandate seriously. As of yesterday, about forty (40) individuals signed up with half of those coming from the youth sector. The PPC is looking at getting at least 200 volunteers for election duty.
With God's grace and the generous participation of the parishioners, the PPC is hoping that the groundswell will continue and by the beginning of March, when all these volunteers are mobilized, there should be more than enough volunteers to man the 70 precincts under the responsibility of SLRP.
So if you are at least 16 years old and a parishioner of SLRP, and would like to offer your services for volunteer election duty, do send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, contact address, age, landline and/or mobile number and email address.
