Request for Air Conditioning Unit from SK

On the comments thread of the post regarding SK Members, Janet Oblero of Vancouver, Canada and friends volunteered to fund an air conditioning unit for the SK offices in the Barangay Hall (abong). This is the official request from Arlene Paliwen, SK Chairwoman.

Barangay elections are to be held in October, and this will be one of the last projects undertaken by the SK, lead by Arlene. Arlene mentioned that the barangay now has a dollar account so funds can be readily received if someone preferred to send donations thru wire transfer. If you'd like to help, contact Arlene for details at Let's help them complete this project before their term finishes in October.
