Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya—The Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Cagayan Valley recently donated lumber to the Department of Education (DepEd) for their school building projects.

DENR Regional Director Gwendolyn Bambalan said the 15,000 board feet of forest products were turned over by the FCF Minerals Corporation  after these were affected by the development in the mining areas of Quezon and Kasibu towns.

“Our common goal is the improvement of government service in this region. Other government agencies can also avail of the confiscated forest products provided they will submit request and indicate the purpose of which the forest products will be used. We just have to make sure that all requirements are in place before disposal,”  Bambalan said. 

Roscoe Gacusana, representative of DepEd Schools Division Superintendent Rachel  Llana expressed their gratitude to the DENR.

“He said the  DENR  assistance  will make our schools conducive for learning. This will be used  by 12 recipient elementary and secondary schools for infrastructure projects and school building improvement,”. he said.
