The Civil Service Commission (CSC), in partnership with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), will hold an online film showing and Zumba session to raise funds for government workers who died in the line of duty. Registration starts today, 19 July, and ends on 13 August.
The online Zumba session will be held on 1 September 2021 to launch the 121st Philippine Civil Service Anniversary (PCSA), while the film showing will be accessible online thru the FDCP Channel from 1-12 September.
These anniversary events are open to all government workers and their family members who are at least 18 years of age at the time of registration.
Participants must register online through bit.ly/PCSAFilmShowing.
Registration fee is PHP250 per participant. Participants may pay in cash or check at the CSC National Capital Region (NCR) Field Office where they are clustered, or through online banking. The participant will also be required to register for free at the FDCP Channel.
Participants will receive a voucher code on 16-20 August 2021 from the Field Office where they registered. The code provides access to join the online Zumba session on 1 September at 8 a.m., and to view FDCP-selected Filipino films starting 10 a.m. on 1 September to 12 m.n. of 12 September at the FDCP channel. The activity is also in line with promoting Philippine cinema and pride in being Filipino.
Proceeds from said anniversary events will go to the CSC’s Pamanang Lingkod Bayani (PLBi) program, a special project which recognizes state employees who died in the line of duty.
CSC honors their hard work and sacrifice through the program’s three (3) components: the Pamanang Parangal sa Lingkod Bayani, a posthumous award/citation in the form of a plaque signed by the CSC Chairperson; the Pamanang Lingkod Bayani Iskolarsyip, a scholarship program in partnership with the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges offering a discount on tuition fees for three (3) immediate family members; and the Pondong Pamanang Lingkod Bayani, a one-time grant of financial assistance.
As of July 2021, assistance have been provided to 206 PLBi beneficiaries.
The fund has previously been supported by the CSC’s annual R.A.C.E. to Serve Fun Run, a benefit event promoting health and wellness among government workers. The fun run has been postponed since last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
