The idea of a Pinoy Tsuper Hero began when Phoenix Petroleum President & CEO Dennis Uy watched a TV Patrol segment about drivers who could not celebrate Christmas with their family because of duty.
“Pinoy Tsuper Hero is a program that aims to honor both public and private drivers who seem to be underappreciated because they miss a lot of important family occasions just to serve people,” Uy expressed.
“Through Pinoy Tsuper Hero, the drivers and their families have the opportunity to uplift their lives. We, in Phoenix, hope to improve the status of transport sector in the country,” Norman Navarro, Phoenix Assistant Vice-President for Mindanao branch, said.
Pinoy Tsuper Hero was also recently launched in Zamboanga and General Santos. It is also set to launch in the provinces of Bacolod, Cebu, Cavite, Batangas, Pampanga, Bulacan and Manila. Schedule of events will be announced.
