The Negros Press Club (NPC) led the rollout of a “Unity” Community Pantry for 200 residents of Progreso Village Relocation Site I in Barangay Vista Alegre, Bacolod City last Sunday, September 12.
The activity, set at the Vista Alegre-Granada Relocation Elementary School campus, was a collective effort of various media outlets – broadcast, print and online – with practitioners based in Bacolod City and Negros Occidental.
“There is no competition in public service. We can set aside rivalries for a common goal. That is, to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters,” NPC president Yves Montecillo said.
The identified beneficiaries received food stuff, hygiene kits and other essential items.
The supplies have been donated by several media outlets, and also by the club’s corporate and individual sponsors./WDJ
