Alumnus Dr. Anacleto B. Millendez, a medical doctor based in the USA, revisited UP Mindanao on September 2, 2013 to donate medicines, for the second time, to the University Infirmary. He was received by Vice Chancellor for Administration Antonio Obsioma, Dept. of Food Science and Chemistry Chairperson Virginia Obsioma, and University Nurses Rowena Uganap and Maria Concetta Mascardo. According to Dr. Millendez, donors in the USA have supplied him with medicines which he, in turn, donates to institutions and uses in medical missions of his Foundation in the Philippines. In  return, he said he only needed a simple report in some future date as to the usage of the medicines for him to relay to his donors. The donation were composed of Antihistamine, Famotidine, Atenolol, Ciprofloxacin, Clarythromycin, Lidocaine, Hydrocortisone, Augmentin, Doxycycline, Naproxene, Nitrofuranton, Loperamide, Chloroquine phosphate, and Promethazine Hcl. Dr. Millendez, who was an officer of the UP Alumni Association Davao during his brief stay in 2008, re-kindled his acquaintance with UP Mindanao with a visit to the College of Science and Mathematics where he met Dean Annabelle Novero. During his tour of the CSM and its biotechnology facilities, Dr. Millendez brought up the possibility of applying for a research grant which he had discovered in a US agency which is available and awaiting applicants.

The Office of Extension and Community Service (OECS), in cooperation with students and staff, organized the event, "Loving Stories , Loving Books: Storybook Donations for Day-Care Pupils". The OECS carried out a book-donation drive from UP Mindanao constituents (students, faculty, and staff), soliciting books for children. These books were donated to the Southern Frontiers Day Care Center located in Sitio San Gabriel, near the campus. Students participated in the story-telling and book-reading program that preceded the turn-over of the donations on February 14, 2013. The activity was part of the 18th Anniversary celebration of UP Mindanao. In the photos are OECS Director Genevieve Quintero, Diocy Guilabtan, and students (Chris David Lao, Melona Maskarinas, Christine Salazar, Lourdes Braceros, Joy Montecalvo, and others), and three books written/illustrated by CHSS Dean Prof. Maria Araceli Dans-Lee.

In the aftermath of Typhoon "PABLO" (BOPHA) that hit Mindanao on 03 December 2012, the UP Mindanao Office of Extension and Community Service (OECS) led by Dir. Genevieve Jorolan-Quintero immediately initiated a relief drive. Donations, composed of rice, canned foods, water, clothing, and medicines,  were consolidated and repacked by UP Mindanao constituents in marathon sessions at the Administration Building Atrium. The first UP Mindanao OECS-led expedition to the disaster area departed on 14 December 2012 for Barangay Andap, New Bataan, Compostela Valley Province, where residents of Sitio Libuton and Sitio Pagsila-an--remote upland sites of which a majority of the population are Mandaya and Mansaka indigenous people--received the donations. The medicines, in turn, were entrusted to health workers manning the lowland evacuation center in the provincial sports complex in New Bataan.  On 14 January 2013, a second OECS expedition went to Laak, Compostela Valley, a town that is host to the UP Mindanao Land Reservation, where a flattened landscape remained of the area that had been the "fruit basket" of the region that formerly had extensive acreage devoted to fruits, bananas, coconut, and palm oil. The relief goods were distributed to residents of Barangay Kidawa, at the heart of the 2,800-hectare Land Reservation. (A school adopted by the former UP Gurong Pahinungod program in the area is now the Kidawa National High School with two  former Pahinungod working as full-time teachers.) On February 6, 2013, volunteers from Barangay Cogonon, New Bataan arrived in the UP Mindanao campus to pick up a supply of relief goods and medicines. On February 16-17, 2013, a third OECS expedition went to Davao Oriental Province, traveling through the havoc-stricken municipalities of Cateel, Boston, Caraga, and Baganga, and delivered the relief goods to Immaculate Concepcion Parish Priest Fr. Joel Vidal. The OECS expeditions were led by its personnel composed of Director Prof. Genevieve Jorolan-Quintero, Ms. Diocy Cloribel-Guilabtan, and REPS Michael Gatela. The OECS thanked the donor organizations: All UP Academic Employees Union-National Council, UP Cebu, UP Los Baños,UP Manila, UP Mindanao, and UP Tacloban chapters; All-UP Workers Union-UP Mindanao; Beta Epsilon Fraternity Alumni Association of North America and Beta Epsilon Fraternity of UP College of Engineering through Mr. Ramon Ramirez; Hope Workers Center and Filipino Parish Pastoral Council-Taiwan through Ms. Eden See; Office of the Barangay Captain, Bgy. Mintal, Davao City; Pay it Forward Project through Ms. Ma. Clarissa Balabag-Rufino, Digos City; PMA Cadets through  Mr. Napoleon and Dr. Sylvia Concepcion; UP Alumni Association Hongkong through Mr. Franco Villanueva; UP Baguio College of Arts and Communication; UP Center for Women's Studies and Networks; UP College of Social  Work and Community Development through Dean Rosalinda Ofreneo; UP Diliman Department of Political Science through Prof. Melanie Flores Lahagit; UP Strategic Research and Management Foundation, Inc; and UP Mindanao constituents.

In a separate assistance effort, UP Mindanao constituents led by VC for Administration Vicente Calag went to the the DPWH-XI depot in Davao City on January 7, 2013 to join other government agencies in repacking relief goods from bulk packages into family-sized packs. On January 28, the members of the All-UP Workers and All-UP Academic Employees Union returned to the depot to help continue the repacking. Much later, Master of Management students--who realized that logistics and communications were the obstacles in mobilizing volunteers--utilized social media, public officials and army reservist transport to supply a total of 210 volunteers to work in the depot on February 10, 17, and 24. Separately, Prof. Antonio Obsioma (Dept. of Bio. Sci.) conducted a relief drive in January among the students and faculty members of the College of Science and Mathematics and personally delivered boxes of medicines and packs of munggo beans to residents in Baganga, Davao Oriental.

UP Mindanao’s Office of Extension and Community Service (OECS) continued to take the lead in its relief drive for communities affected by Typhoon “Pablo” on two separate occasions during UP Mindanao's anniversary month. On February 6, 2013, relief goods and medicines were turned over for Barangay Cogonon, Municipality of New Bataan, Compostela Valley Province. The goods were picked up by Dr. Guia Moring, a volunteer-resident of Bgy. Cogonon who is connected with the Tagum City Veterinarian’s Office. On February 16-17, 2013, the OECS staff composed of Director Genevieve Quintero, Michael Gatela, and Diocy Guilabtan, together with Dept. of Social Sciences Lecturer Emmanuel Nabayra and Prof. Raymuno Pavo went to the Municipality of Baganga, Davao Oriental Province to personally deliver another package of relief goods and medicines. The goods were received by Fr. Joel Vidal of Immaculate Conception Parish, Banganga, and Mr. Tito Pondoc of Divine Mercy Apostolate, who pledged to distribute the goods equitably. The OECS expressed their gratitude to those who made the relief drive in February a success, particularly the donors led by the Beta Epsilon Fraternity Alumni Association of North America and Beta Epsilon Fraternity of UP College of Engineering, through Mr. Ramon Ramirez.

UP Mindanao delivered a second truckload of relief goods to Typhoon Pablo-stricken towns in Compostela Valley province. This time the relief goods were delivered to the Municipality of Laak, a town that is host to the UP Mindanao Land Reservation. The core of the UP Mindanao team was composed of the Office of Extension and Community Service, led by its Director, Prof. Genevieve Quintero, and staffmembers, former Gurong Pahinungod volunteer Michael Gatela, and Diocy Guilabtan, using a truck provided by Barangay Mintal. They were joined once again by REPS Mr. Salome Sendrejas, and another former Gurong Pahinungod volunteer and present UPMin employee, Michelle Panis. The team made their coordination-courtesy call to Laak Mayor Reynaldo Navarro, after which they proceeded to Barangay Kidawa, at the heart of the 2,800-hectare Laak-Veruela Land Reservation. There the team viewed the damage that Typhoon Pablo inflicted on the area. According to Mayor Navarro, the area had been the "fruit basket" of the region with extensive acreage devoted to fruits, bananas, coconut, and palm oil. Now, a quick glance will reveal the extent of the flattened landscape. The team made its base camp in Bgy. Kidawa, where the high school initiated by the Gurong Pahinungod is now the Kidawa National High School, with two of the former Pahinungod volunteers still at work in the school.
