In May, welfare institution Hospicio de San Jose appealed for monetary aid after going into lockdown after some of its staff members tested positive for COVID-19.

To aid the foster care institution and to help sustain the Lasallian community pantry, the Taft Initiative will be hosting Tahanan Benefit Concert on Saturday, July 31.

“As the effects of the pandemic are still being felt by communities all across the country, people with the best intentions at heart continuously step up to the plate in order to address these problems,” the student-led organization said.

“Whether it may be to provide food for starving families and those in need, to creating projects that serve as an avenue for raising awareness to the different social and political issues at present, the Filipino youth has always thrived in the service of others.”

The event will be streamed live on its Facebook page at 6 p.m.

As of July 26, the fundraiser has already collected over P44,000.
