Matt Nieto gathers help for Cainta frontliners

National men’s 5-on-5 basketball team pool member Matt Nieto has been helping out his godfather and Mayor Kit Nieto in helping his constituents in the province of Rizal.

For his part, Matt has been making calls to some companies to help out.

“Patuloy po ang aming pamilya sa paghahanap, pakikipag-usap at pakikipag-coordinate sa mga tao at organisasyon na nais tumulong, mag-donate o maghatid ng kanilang supporta para sa bayan ng Cainta,” said Matt.

“Ginagawa po namin ito sapagkat ito ang tama – ito ang dapat.

“Alam po namin na napakaswerte namin sapagkat nasa bahay kami, may pagkain, kama at iba pang pangangailangan sa araw-araw. Subalit, hindi po kasi ito ang situwasyon at realidad para sa napakaraming Pilipino, maging sa Cainta po. Hindi naman po namin kayang umupo-upo lang dito sa bahay nang alam ito,” the 20-year-old continued.

Tuesday morning, Chooks-to-Go heeded his call.

Chooks-to-Go, under the leadership of its president Ronald Mascariñas, sent packs of chicken that was distributed to the medical workers in Cainta Hospital and other parts of the province.CTG-Covid-19-Food-Donation-Matt-Nieto-Cainta-Hospital-6 Matt Nieto gathers help for Cainta frontliners Basketball Gilas Pilipinas News  - philippine sports news

“Napakalaki po ng aking pasasalamat sa inihandog na donasyon at pakain ng Chooks-to-Go para sa ating mga frontliners sa Cainta. Lubos po ang paghihirap at pag-tratrabaho ng ating mga frontliners para sa ikabubuti ng buong bayan at ng buong bansa,” said the product of Ateneo de Manila University.

“Sa totoo lang, hindi lang manok ang nabigay namin at ng Chooks-to-Go sa ating mga frontliner. Sa pamamagitan ng pamimigay namin ng mga manok para sa kanila, napapakita din natin sa kanila kung gaano kalaki ang pasasalamat natin sa serbisyo at pag-sasakripisyo nila. Sila po ang mga totoong Manok ng Bayan, masaya po akong nakakatulong tayo sa kanila.”

Since the enhanced community quarantine was implemented all throughout the country to stop the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the staff of Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. has worked non-stop to supply frontliners with food and other necessities.

And it inspires Matt to continue to help out his Ninong in this battle against the pandemic in his own way.

“Maraming, maraming salamat po, Boss Ronald! Salamat sa tulong at suportang inyong ibinigay sa akin hindi lang sa basketball kung hindi ngayon para sa bayan ng Cainta,” said Matt.

“Napakalaking tulong po ito para sa mga frontliner nating nag-sasakripisyo para sa ating bayan at sa ating bansa.”

Besides this, Matt was also able to receive goods from Ateneo assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga, Larry Fonacier, Sherjack Siao, Debbie Tan, and Gatorade.

As of March 24, there have been 501 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Philippines.
