BACOLOD CITY, May 9 (PIA6) -- The city government of Bacolod awarded a certificate of appreciation to Lerma Tanalgo, a janitress of Solid Janitorial Services.
In a press release from the city hall, the janitress recently returned a wallet containing P70,000 in cash and other personal important papers to its owner.
Tanalgo is a 21-year old janitress from Florenville Subdivision, Brgy. Tangub, Bacolod City, assigned at the cinema section of SM City Bacolod. She found the wallet while she was cleaning the seats in the cinema about 10 p.m., after the movie hours.
The certificate was given by Bacolod Councilor Caesar Distrito, in the presence of Moises de la Cruz, manager of the Public Employment Services Offfice, May Castro, public relations manager of SM, and Lia Javellana, assistant mall manager.
Javellana said the mall inculcates honesty as a company policy in all its employees.
Last Year, Ray Pagal, a security guard at the north wing of the mall, also found P25,000, which he also turned over to the management, that returned it to the rightful owner.
The SM management also gave Tanalgo a plaque of appreciation and gift for her honesty. (City Hall/JSC/CD-PIA6 NegOcc.)
