PCC has a new home - rental free

The Philippine Community Council of NSW has been operating from its new office address at the Community Migrant Resource Centre, 1 Horwood Place, Parramatta NSW since 15 August 2013.

The PCC Board 2013 had come to a majority decision to close its Nirimba office in Quakers Hill as this was costing the peak body a rental charge of  $430.00 per month.  So far, PCC-NSW have paid $7,312.00 to Nirimba, an amount which the board believed could be better spent on charitable projects in Australia or  in the Philippines.

The new PCC office in Parramatta, which was secured thru the initiative of its hardworking and indefatigable President Ms. Elsa Collado, not only sits in the heart of Parramatta City, but most importantly, PCC was provided for an office space free of charge with an access to Job Club computer and printer. 

Since August, PCC Board 2013 has been holding their meetings at their new home.

Mabuhay ang PCC!
