Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, people come together in solidarity to help one another. For its part, the Bantog Samahang Nayon Multi-Purpose Cooperative (BSNMPC) donated relief goods to indigent co-op members and families particularly at Sitio Cabaruan in barangay Bantog, Asingan, Pangasinan.
Each pack of relief goods, consisting of 2 kilos of rice, 1/2 sugar, and 25 grams of coffee, were distributed last March 26. This act of kindness benefited more than 50 families in the said area.
Pacita Aquino, BSNMPC quality assurance officer, said the co-op also started conducting its community-based milk feeding program to benefit senior citizens and schoolchildren in hopes of boosting their immune systems.
The BSNMPC is one of the assisted dairy cooperatives of the Philippine Carabao Center at Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University in Rosario, La Union.
