In an effort to help trace coronavirus (COVID-19) positive cases in his city, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno launched free walk-in and drive-thru testing centers last July 15.
But Moreno also appealed to the private sector to help him sustain the operations, including providing the daily needs of the military and medical frontliners stationed in each center.
“I want every Manileño to be good people to others, like how Manila is trying to be a good neighbor to other cities,” Moreno said.
“Let’s embrace as many as we can. We cannot survive alone. We will get through this challenge.”
Chooks-to-Go once again answered the call of duty on Friday.
Behind the leadership of Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. President Ronald Mascariñas, Chooks-to-Go gave 100 food packs to the frontliners stationed at Quirino Stadium.
For Mascariñas, this is their way of giving back to the frontliners who have given so much to help make the country safe.
“I admire the initiative of Mayor Isko especially in this operation,” said Mascariñas. “The rapid testing drive-thrus is one way of helping trace who has the coronavirus or not.
“And we vow that we will help in taking care of the frontliners who are handling this operation. Hindi sila nag-iisa.”
Chooks-to-Go will continue to give food packs to the frontliners on a daily basis.
