Donated Salts in Community Pantry in Naga Filled with Money, Shocks Organizer
The organizer of a community pantry in Naga was shocked after the salts donated to them were filled with different values of money.
Melody Miranda Conag, an organizer of the community pantry in Dinaga, Cuatro Esquenas, Naga, expresses gratitude to the generous donor who donated several packs of salt. But it was not just a simple pack of salt, it includes a surprise inside.
Melody Miranda Conag claims that she and three friends established a community pantry in their neighborhood. When they opened the salt given to them on the second day of their pantry, they were shocked.
They decided to repack the donated salt because it was too much for one person, she explained. They discovered that each pack of salt contained various denominations of currency, ranging from a 20 peso bill to a 200 peso bill. Those that are fortunate will receive a free pack of salt as well as money.
Community pantries have been one of the most talked-about issues online in recent days. The charity project is offering free supplies to the less fortunate Filipinos who can’t afford to buy enough food amid the pandemic.
The concept of a “community pantry” became popular on social media and spread throughout the country. The program on Quezon City’s Maginhawa Street was repeated in several areas to assist those in need.
