A total of 500 indigents, including 150 selected senior citizens from Barangay Margot in Angeles City benefited from Clark Development Corporation’s (CDC) community pantry held at the Barangay Margot covered court recently.

CDC’s partner locators namely Clark Marriott Hotel, Global Square Plaza Phils. Corp., COEX Inc., DH Philippines Electrical Corp., Metro Clark Waste Management Corp., Clark Resort Travel and Amusement Corp., BW Manufacturing Corp., and Gold Tree Tobacco Manufacturing Corp. were among those who contributed to the said community pantry.
Advantest Philippines Inc., Evertrust Business Solutions Inc., and Outback Five Star Clark Philippines Inc. also took part in the initiative.
The donations are assorted grocery items, food packs, fresh vegetables, and face masks which were turned over to the residents during the activity.
Meanwhile, CDC Chairman Atty. Edgardo D. Pamintuan graced the activity together with CDC Vice President for Admin and Finance Engr. Mariza O. Mandocdoc and CDC Assistant Vice President for External Affairs Rommel C. Narciso.
CDC External Affairs Assistant Manager Ronald Antonio and CDC Public Safety Division (PSD) Manager Antonio V. Rosario Jr. were also present in the said activity.
Mandocdoc shared her inspirational message to the beneficiaries during the closing remarks of the program.
“The help that our locators are able to give and CDC’s growth are considered blessings that we happily share to you. There will be many more to come in the future,” she said.
