AdZU USO Provides Community Service and Security

Ateneo de Zamboanga University Security Office (USO) joins the university higher education units in its community engagements by participating in the annual “Operation: Shoebox.” The program, which began in 2009, reaches out to indigent communities in Zamboanga City with the intent of distributing gift boxes containing school supplies, shoes, hygiene kits and the likes. The Ateneo de Zamboanga Higher Education units and Physical Education (PE) Department also contribute to the success of this yearly charity program.

Despite the risk and hazards of travelling to rural areas, the teams are devoted and committed to deliver goods to different places including, but not limited to, the Aldana Elementary School, Campo Uno, Campo Dos, Colonia Elementary School, Dangcalan Elementary School, Magsaysay Elementary School, and Ubit Elementary School.

The AFP Philippine Army also contributed to the success of this event through their provision of safety and security to the community service programs of AdZU. More than focusing on security concerns of the university, USO also makes sure that community engagement is one of its priorities.
