BTS fans, may sariling community pantry na rin

SHOW-MY - Salve V. Asis (Pilipino Star Ngayon) - April 21, 2021 - 12:00am

Wow, pati BTS fans ay nag-o-operate na rin ng community pantries.

Maging ang mga pari ng Manila Cathed­ral ay nag-yes na rin sa sinimulang mutual aid program ni Ms. Ana Patricia Non na hindi nakapag-operate kahapon dahil sa issue ng red tagging.

Pero today ay open na ito.

Kabilang sa mabilis na nagpahayag ng suporta si QC Mayor Joy Belmonte sa community pantries kaya naman maraming netizens ang pumuri sa kanya. “I would like to personally assure Ms. Ana Patricia Non and other like-minded individuals that the local government of Quezon City fully supports Community Pantries.

“Indeed, these initiatives highlight the bayanihan spirit inherent in our QCitizens. The city government will therefore ensure that the organizers and beneficiaries of Community Pantries remain safe and unimpeded.

“For several days now, our Task Force Disiplina and barangay leaders have assisted in maintaining peace and order in the Maginhawa Community Pantry. They are only there to help remind the public about observing minimum health standards and to assist in controlling any crowds that may form. Task Force Disiplina is instructed to do the same for any other community pantries in the city should barangay personnel need additional assistance.

“Early today, I reached out to Ms. Non and discussed her concerns about her safety and security. I have requested QCPD District Director Brigadier General Antonio Yarra to conduct an investigation regarding Ms. Non’s apprehensions and earlier experiences. I will likewise meet with Station 9 Commander Police LtCol, Imelda Reyes, under which jurisdiction Maginhawa falls, to further discuss Miss Non’s security concerns.

“In these difficult times, let us allow kindness and selflessness to prevail. Mabuhay po tayong lahat, at magtulungan po tayong lahat,” buong statement ni Mayor Joy.
