The activity was graced by PPMC’s President & CEO, Atty. Felix S. Racadio and PPMC Director Nicky Oller. A total of 80 volunteers from PPMC, La Union Police Provincial Office, PNP AVSEC, Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), Philippine Navy (PN), Philippine Air Force (PAF), Bureau of Customs (BOC), La Union Prime Eagles Club (LUPEC), Brotherhood of Brave Maharlikan Tigers (BBM Tigers), and Thunderbird Resorts & Casinos Poro Point participated in the blood drive activity.
The Poro Point Freeport Zone used to house the former Wallace Air Station. The enactment of Republic Act 7227 (Bases Conversion and Development Act) on March 19, 1992 and Proclamation No. 216 on July 27, 1993 effectively transferred the stewardship of the Freeport to the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) to facilitate its conversion into a productive economic growth center.
