San Jacinto, Masbate cops bent on collecting a million pencils


Members of the San Jacinto, Masbate police station have embarked on a worthy project–that of collecting one million pencils for poor pupils.

According to this Facebook post, the project aims to “collect one million pencils for the underprivileged pupils/students in far-flung schools,who usually divide one ‘lapis’ into three pieces in order to write and learn”.

The initiative in also intended to set a World Guinness Record. The project will run until October 24, 2016.

“We asked everyone to join us and help to achieve this goal by dropping off your pencils in our drop box at San Jacinto MPS building,” the post further read.
