DONATE YOUR “PUNTOS DE ORO” FROM
SUPERMERCADO DEL REY
TOWARD FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO A NEEDY STUDENT AT
PANAMA’S MARITIME ACADEMY
Panama is a maritime nation and badly needs persons trained to be Officers in the Merchant Marine. The Universidad Marítima Internacional de Panamá (UMIP) helps meet this need and offers Panamanians from modest backgrounds the opportunity to qualify as shipboard officers or for executive positions elsewhere in the Maritime Industry. However, a significant number of students and prospective students at the University need financial assistance to cover the cost of books, equipment and living expenses.
To help meet this need, the Panama Council of the Navy League is coordinating a a Program to convert “Puntos de Oro” from the Supermercado del Rey Chain into Balboas/Dollars to be used for financial assistance to deserving students, You can contribute to this Program by donating as little as 1000 points from your “Puntos de Oro” account. All you have to do is fill in the form, have it witnessed and contact the Navy League office whose address is on the form. NOTE! You do not have to be a member of the Navy League to donate to this worthwhile program.
