Xavier University’s deployment of relief goods is assisted by the Cagayan de Oro City LGU which provided the truck and drivers for the trips.
The University continues to accept donations through BPI bank and cash offerings at the University Church (with explicit intention for typhoon victims). Xavier University is grateful to all cash and in-kind donors and would like to ask everyone to invite others to contribute any amount and useful goods they can afford to share with the typhoon survivors.
