Zonta Club of Central Tuguegarao commits to replenishing local food pantries
The Zonta Club of Central Tuguegarao, Philippines, received a letter from their city mayor seeking support in the Tuguegarao city’s “Adopt a Barangay Program”, which helps to establish a community pantry in one of the city’s barangays.
The club is honored to be a part of this initiative, as looking after less fortunate citizens in trying times is a shared responsibility deeply ingrained in the spirit of bayanihan (Filipino term for community spirit; helping each other out).
After careful deliberation and consultation, club members decided to help replenish the established community pantries in the barangays of Balzain East, Balzain West, Linao East and Pengue. The club plans to continuously replenish the pantry resources for as long as possible.
