HGS 2001 Community Pantry serves Tayum residents

TAYUM, Abra, May 25(PIA) -- Gifted to give. With this as the theme of their 20th anniversary , the Holy Ghost School (HGS) Batch 2001 spearheaded a Community Pantry Movement to all 11 barangays in the municipality of Tayum amidst the reimposition of Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine in the province recently.

The pantry offered coffee, bread, cooking oil, vinegar, soy sauce, patis (fish sauce), eggs, soy beans, noodles, bags of rice, pansit miki, canned goods, hygiene kits, laundry detergent, and several goods.

A member of each family in all barangays lined up for the goods offered in the pantry strictly following health standard protocols like physical distancing, wearing of face mask, and sanitizing of hands.

 Maria Elena Valdez from Barangay Patucannay expressed her gratitude to the group saying, “Some say that this is a little help, but for us who are so much in need and who lost their jobs in this COVID-19 pandemic, this is a big help. Sometimes what is little for some is already the world for us. Thank you so much HGS Batch 2001; this means a lot, continue inspiring and sharing your blessings.”

Jackie Alvaro, HGS Batch 2001 coordinator, said this is  their way  of thanksgiving in their 20th anniversary. Thru the Community Pantry Movement, they share their blessings, help those in need especially those who have lost their jobs during the pandemic, and inspiring others to support our “kababayan” during these trying times.

 Said activity was supported by the Local Government Unit of Tayum headed by Mayor Placido Eduarte Jr., Municipal Police Station led by PLT. June S. Saliw-an, private establishments and various donors.(JDP/XAC-PIA CAR, Abra)
