The San Roque Community Pantry is packed with vegetables, rice, canned goods, bread and packs of instant noodles that can help residents feed their family.

“Maaari po kayong dumaan at kumuha ng sasapat para sa inyong pangangailangan (You can come by and get enough for your needs),” CYLI said in a Facebook post.

“Sa mga kaibigan natin na may sobra at nais mag-donate, maaari niyo rin pong i-drop-off ang inyong mga tulong tulad ng de lata, bigas, noodles at hindi madaling mabulok na mga prutas at gulay (To our friends who have extra and want to donate, you can also drop off your donations such as canned goods, rice, noodles and non-perishable fruits and vegetables),” it added.

Those who are interested to donate may drop off items at the San Roque Cathedral.

They may also send cash donations through GCASH number: 09356284637, Ronald Quita Fortaliza.
