Lazatin donates 2-month salary to Angeles community pantries
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. has pledged two months worth of his salary to be donated to community pantries that are now operating in the city.
According to a Sun Star Pampanga report, the mayor plans to hand over P228,000 to six community pantries in Angeles City.
The money will be used to purchase 240 boxes of corned beef and 57 sacks of rice.
The items will then be delivered to the pantries operating in front of Immaculate Concepcion Church in Barangay Balibago, JK Community Pantry in front of Tollhouse, near Astro Park in Barangay Balibago, Nepo Community Pantry, Barangay Sto. Rosario and Barangay Claro M. Recto, the report said.
“We, Filipinos, are known all over the world for keeping the spirit of ‘bayanihan’ alive, even during these modern times,” Lazatin was quoted as saying.
“Ngayon natin dapat mas higit ipamalas ang pagmamalasakit at pagtutulungan sa ating komunidad, lalo na ngayong hinaharap pa rin natin ang pandemya,” he said in the report.
