Home-grown designer Marlon Tuazon has donated facemasks to the senior citizens residing at Bale Pusu, the first Angeles City-run home for the aged.
Tuazon, two-time gold medalist winner of TernoCon, a terno-making convention and competition for regional designers, sponsored by Bench and the Cultural Center of the Philippines, made the donation during the ribbon cutting ceremony of his shop MCT Couture, according to a statement.
The event was attended by Lazatin’s Chief Adviser IC Calaguas and Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel on Saturday.
Tuazon has been actively participating in the city government’s programs particularly arts and design, officials said.
“Creativity is our survival tool in offering solutions to adversities that shake us to the core: as individuals, as a community, and as a nation. Pandemic or no pandemic,” the designer said in one interview.
Bale Pusu is the first city-operated home for the homeless/abandoned elderly that opened last September 15.
