Mintal SK offers free photocopies

The Sangguniang Kabataan Council of Barangay Mintal under SK Chair Kendall Joyce Abrio is offering free photocopy and printing services for all youths aged 10 to 30 years old.

In a message sent to TIMES by Abrio, the concept was patterned after the SK Council in Barangay Ninoy Aquino in Angeles City.

“I said to my council that it is possible for us to do the same since we already have a computer and a printer with scanner that we requested from the Office of the City Mayor,” said Abrio.

“I asked the committee head on education, SK Kagawad Marlo Brua, to draft the guidelines so that we can discuss it in our regular session,” she added.

The project was implemented on Sept. 11 of this year and a week after, only a few have availed.
“We are still making a new publication material scheduled to be posted today. We are extending our services beyond the 8 to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday office schedule, because maybe they are still in school at that time,” she added.

To avail of the free printing and photocopy services, the name, contact details, number of pages availed and signature must be provided log book for monitoring purposes since the maximum pages to be availed is 20 pages per week.

All documents must be related to education and other related legal/formal documents and free bond paper is provided for documents two pages or less. Extra bond paper should be provided by those documents are more than the specified pages.

The SK Council also gives option to send the document to the Facebook Page Sangguniang Kabataan ng Barangay Mintal and have it picked up the following day.

However, the council discourages documents with large and heavily colored pictures and the service is subject to availability of resources.

Other than the free printing and photocopy services, Abrio affirmed that they also have seminars on disaster risk reduction, human trafficking, anti-illegal drugs, sexually transmitted infection awareness, and gender sensitivity.

“In November, we will start our month-long activities in preparation for the Araw ng Mintal on Dec. 5,” she said.
