Now on its 7th day of operations, the DLSU SAGIP Metro 3 led by the USG and COSCA wishes to extend its appreciation of the efforts provided by the Lasallian community and other individuals/corporations for the generous gifts to the survivors of the flooding. Once again, each one of you has given more substance to the Lasallian Core Values of faith, Service, and Communion in Mission.
