Just recently, the Employee Volunteerism Program was also held at the Felicidad Sy Wellness Center in Molo, wherein employees through their personal generosity, come up with resources to augment the installation of a steel fence of the terrace area of the FSCAP office in Molo to shield it from burglars and to make the area safer for the senior citizens.
