Actress and philanthropist Angel Locsin will be setting up a community pantry on Friday, marking her 36th birthday.
Locsin said on Facebook that his pantry is his way of honoring Filipinos who have contributed to the national movement providing free food to the needy during the pandemic.
âI have met the Philippines and community pantries in every country, I decided to celebrate my birthday tomorrow by setting up a community pantry here,â Locsin said.
The “The General’s Daughter” star said her pantry will be located at the Titanium Commercial Building, 36 Holy Spirit Drive, corner Don Matias St., Don Antonio Heights, Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City.
She also said it would be open at 10 a.m. and reminded the public to follow safety protocols.
Since the Maginhawa Pantry sprouted in Quezon City, it has inspired other community efforts in different parts of the country to share what they can.
Just last week, Locsin along with actress Anne Curtis donated P 1 million to Pasig City to bolster the city’s efforts against COVID-19.
The two actresses previously raised some 6 million pesos through a celebrity auction and donated it to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) and 5 local governments, including Pasig.
Locsin was also a visible figure in other relief campaigns during the pandemic.
