Councilor Jesus “Jay” Sangil
ANGELES CITY — Councilor Jesus “Jay” Sangil commended the Maginhawa Community Pantry that ignited the bayanihan spirit of the country recently.
The Maginhawa Community Pantry is a movement intended to help the people in their community who do not have the means to feed themselves and their families. It is an initiative of Ana Patricia Non, a 26–year–old entrepreneur in Quezon City and daughter of a former city hall employee of this city, Art Non.
Sangil said he is urging the city government and private sectors to support the community pantry project to augment the Department of Social Welfare and Development in giving “ayuda” to the people especially the marginalized sector and the working class who are greatly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Let us set aside politics here, no political boundaries and color in helping our fellowmen,” said Sangil.
“Like when the city and nearby provinces were hit hardby the Mount Pinatubo eruption, buhay na buhay ang bayanihan spirit sa ating mga kababayan,” he noted, recalling his coverage, as a working journalist, of the Pinatubo disaster and the rehabilitation and renewal of the affected areas in this city and Pampanga
Sangil said he will file a resolution commending the laudable project of Ana Patrcia Non at the council’s regular session on Tuesday.
