Bontoc, Mountain Province – The personnel of the Bontoc Local Government Unit (LGU) in charge of the solid waste management or garbage collection in this capital town are grateful recipients of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from the CFB Marketing on June 19, 2020.
The items include 17 pieces of raincoats, 17 pairs of boots, 18 pairs of gloves, 20 pieces of N95 masks, 20 pieces of goggles, and 20 boxes of Vitamin C.
According to Charito Fagyan Bacullo, the proprietress of CFB Marketing, this undertaking is a means of celebrating the 23rd Anniversary of the business as a distributor of pharmaceutical drugs.
She said that the CFB Marketing celebrated its 23rd Anniversary on May 14, 2020, and the donation came in only today due to the placement of the entire Luzon on Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) on March 16, 2020 and the shifting of different areas to General Community Quarantine (GCQ) and Modified GCQ thus, affecting the purchase and delivery of the donations.
Bacullo added that they chose the personnel of the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (MENRO) in recognition of their dedication to their work ensuring that garbage in the capital town are timely collected even during rainy days.
In response, Sangguniang Bayan member Alsannyster Patingan who represented Bontoc Mayor Franklin Odsey expressed the profound gratitude of the Bontoc LGU to the CFB Marketing and its personnel for the donations.
He added that the donations are needed by the recipients who are the frontliners in the solid waste management.
The donation was also made possible with the coordination of Mrs. Josephine Fang-asan with the Bontoc LGU.
The donation was received by Sangguniang Bayan members Alsannyster Patingan, John Engngeg, George Luis Fakat and Barangay Samoki IPMR Manuel Kalang-ad.
Meanwhile, the CFB Marketing also donated hand sanitizer to the Sta. Rita de Cascia Cathedral.
Also, it shared its blessings to the families of identified children with special needs belonging to the low-income class through provision of grocery items and medicines.
