Charity that Goes Back to its Roots

Once a student, and now a proud alumni of the Pio Elementary School (PVES) in Valenzuela City, Odilon A. Santos, the current president and CEO of Delsan Office Systems Corporation,  recently  gave back to his second home.

The place that once honed Santos holds a special place in his heart. As way of giving back, the Delsan office Systems Corporation, through DepEd’s Adopt-A-School program, generously donated several  school equipment,  as well as aided the renovation of the school’s building.  

“I truly believe in the proverb, ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.’ Education fuels you towards doing meaningful things. It is the only treasure that no one can steal from you,” Santos says. Santos recalls that during his days as a Pio Elementary School  student, tools and learning resources were very scarce. Eliminating the inconvenience caused by  limited resources is what Santos hopes for,  for the current students of his alma mater.  

Through DepEd’s  Adopt-A-School program, Delsan Office Systems Corporation, one of the country’s leading supplier of printing services and business process solutions, made a generous donation of 10 laser printers, and one projector to principal Lilibeth S. Gozo, and Adopt-A-School coordinator, Sammy B. Mariano. In a similar manner, the corporation also financed the renovation of the Gabaldon Building inside the Pio Valenzuela Elementary school.

Through the corporation’s donation to PVES, Santos hopes that their  quality of education improves and likewise hopes for both the  teachers and students of the school  to the benefit from the upgraded and modernized school system.

Odilon A. Santos finished a degree in Radio Electronics Engineering at FEATI University, and is currently the President and CEO of Delsan Office Systems Corporation. For more than 25 years, the company that Santos helped establish now holds the position of being one of the leading providers of managed print services, business process innovations, and software solutions in several industries. Focusing on a people-oriented workforce, Santos believes that hard work that emanates throughout the company is the key to success.
