According to reports, DepEd will be mobilizing parents, teachers, students, civic and business groups, religious organizations, local government units, non-government organizations and other community residents for the annual school maintenance program.

The schools will not accept cash, only donations in kind such as repair/construction/cleaning materials and/or services.

Everyone should note that joining the activity is voluntary and is not a pre-requisite for enrollment.
