PHEEPOY - PHILPOST MASCOT
“Pheepoy” the lovable mascot of the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost)
has appeared on several occasions at PhilPost which started during
last year’s celebration of its 110th anniversary.
A project of Annabel Erfelo of the Office of the Assistant
Postmaster General for Marketing, the PhilPost has lined up several
media appearances to attract public attention and promote the
services of the postal service.
Postmaster General Hector R.R. Villanueva said that Pheepoy
personifies an honest and dedicated postman, whose primary goal is
to deliver the mails rain or shine anywhere in the country and
around the world, to the satisfaction of the mailing public.
“The mascot is also a way of reaching out to kids and families that
letter writing is the best tool to communicate and interact in the
light of modern technology,” Villanueva added.
Representing the more than 13,000 postal employees in the country, “Pheepoy,”
personifies an honest, ever dependable and dedicated postmen. His
outgoing spirit, high energy and passion also represent the ideal
qualities of every PhilPost employee.
