Tagum City – The recent typhoons brought destructions to some places in the Philippines leaving thousands of people with no homes and properties amidst the ongoing health crisis; thus, the City Government of Tagum and its people deemed it necessary to help fellow Filipinos get back on their feet through a donation drive.
Starting from November 15, the local government unit of Tagum initiated a donation drive through the City Youth Development Office. 500,000 worth of in-kind donations was collected by the office at the end of the said activity.
These donations included clothes that are tightly packed to avoid contamination, grocery items, and food. These goods are expected to be received by Gov. Rodolfo T. Albano III and Gov. Manuel N. Mamba, governors of Isabela and Cagayan Valley respectively.
In addition, some donations would also be given to Mr. Leo Ting, a resident of Isabela who helped Tagum during the height of the quarantine situation in the city so that he could distribute the donations to those who need them most in Isabela.
Meanwhile, Vice Mayor Eva Lorraine Estabillo spearheaded the loading of the donations to the cargo truck. She also sent her sympathy to the people of Isabela and Cagayan Valley. Ziyarah Manalo/CIO Tagum
