And the generosity continues with the help of Petron and Total Philippines.

Despite the inconvenience the COVID-19 pandemic brought, there are still people and organizations who have decided to extend a helping hand for those who are in need, finding different ways to show their gratitude to our frontliners and fight off the virus.

Petron announced that Petron Value Card (PVC) holders can donate their points to fund personal protective equipment, masks, and relief packs for the health workers from the Lung Center Philippines.

Petron has pledged an initial contribution of Php 1-million to support the PVC drive.
