With its main objective “Public Service Through Extension,” the library personnel organized a “Pre-Loved Sale” – a fund-raising activity held at UPV Library, Miagao and Iloilo City campuses on November 14-15, 2019. The library staff donated their slightly used clothes, shoes, bags, etc. for sale. Different kinds of fruits were also available. Proceeds of this activity will be utilized for the said project. This year’s beneficiary is the Day Care school of Barangay Mambatad, Miagao, Iloilo where the library personnel will give assistance for the school supplies need of the children.
The fund-raising activity was successful because of the full cooperation among the library staff with the support of the University Librarian. Former UPV chancellor, Dr. Ida M. Siason and the sister of Ms. Sharon C. Galorport, contributed a lot to the success of the said activity through their participation in donating their pre-loved items. A total amount of Twenty Thousand Three Hundred Twenty Nine Pesos (Php20,329.00) was raised. Of this amount, the Library was also able to donate Two Thousand Pesos (Php2,000.00) to the victims of Mindanao earthquake.
