Donate A Shoe @ Payatas Dumpsite

15 04 2009

Instead of throwing away those “old, tattered, and worn-out” running shoes which were replaced with those slightly used donated shoes, the members of the Elite Team Bald Runner deemed it wise to wash and repair them to be donated (and recycled) to the garbage personnel or “scavengers” at the Payatas Garbage Dumpsite. So, after weeks of washing and repairing those old, tattered, and worn-out running shoes, we finally visited the Payatas Dumpsite this morning with Coach Titus Salazar and the personnel of the Philippine Army’s Civil-Military Operations (CMO) Battalion under the leadership of Colonel Buenaventura Pascual.

At the Dumpsite, I was entertained by Jameel RM Jaymalin, Head of the Quezon City Controlled Disposal Facility (Official Name of the Payatas Dumpsite) and Payatas Operations Group, who is also a retired Colonel from the Philippine Army. He gave me a tour of the facility and assisted me in the distribution of the shoes to his personnel and the “scavengers”. The following are the pictures of the said activity.

Wow. Thanks Sir Jovie for donating running shoes to the people in Payatas!
Indeed, this is very useful as they do their everyday work at the Methane Gas Emission Reduction Project at the dumpsite! :O)
