Rox Montealegre shifts sports clothing plant to PPE production hub

Rox Montealegre’s fundraising drive, which looks to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to frontline health workers, has earned the support of well-meaning organizations and personalities across the country. 

Montealegre, who owns school clothing line The A-List, called on goodhearted individuals to help her and her tailors provide PPE donations to doctors, nurses, and medical staff caring for coronavirus-stricken (COVID-19) patients.

Organizations and friends heeded her call, enabling her to share thousands of much-needed protective suits to frontliners.

The latest among responders is Senate Public Services Committee chair Sen. Grace Poe, who tapped Montealegre for the PPE donations her son Brian Llamanzares handed to the National Center for Mental Health and other key hospitals. Llamanzares is Montealegre’s batchmate in Ateneo.

Thanking the Senator in her social media post, Montealegre bared, “I met Senator Grace before she entered politics, and even then, she’s truly the kindest soul. Her team would always help out in providing support to kids.

“Thanks to suppliers like Miss Roxanne Montealegre who converted her clothing production line into a PPE manufacturing factory, we are able to distribute high-quality, locally made suits as donations to hospitals.”

Montealegre has planted seeds of kindness that has reaped a generous harvest in this time of the pandemic.

Aside from PPEs, Poe has also donated over 2,000 sacks of rice; close to 2,000 test kits; over 20,000 face masks; food packs and other forms of aid to frontliners and vulnerable families amid the pandemic.

Indeed, giving is not just about making a donation; it is about making a difference.
