Logistics firm J&T Express has opened its own community pantry to help Filipinos in need amid the pandemic.
“Employees of J&T Express donated food items to share, proving that the company is made up of team members who have a heart for the community,” the company said in a statement.
The community pantry was set up at J&T Express' Muntinlupa branch at 37 National Highway in Barangay Putatan.
In a Facebook post, J&T Express Philippines vice president Zoe Chi said more community pantries will be opened in different locations soon.
“I was there since the community pantry opened until (the day) ended. As today is the first time, we really don't know how much food will be collected and if we will make it successful or not. Almost a hundred people got the food,” she said.
“I decided that we will continuously do J&T pantry in different areas. We will (weather) the pandemic. We are all in this together,” Chi added.
