They may have spent their last day at work on August 31, but the mission to serve the Filipino continues for the retrenched employees of ABS-CBN Regional.

The former workers of ABS-CBN’s various provincial stations recently led the distribution and turnover of food and basic necessities for Filipinos affected by the quarantine in Bacolod, Tacloban, and Iloilo as volunteers of ABS-CBN Foundation’s “Pantawid ng Pag-ibig.”

Among them is ABS-CBN Bacolod’s former public service officer Angelo Angolo. In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Angelo said that the spirit of the network’s slogan “In the Service of the Filipino” will always be present in their lives.

“Naipasara lang naman ang physical structure, pero ang puso at commitment… ‘yong commitment na gusto tumulong, hindi nila mapapatigil,” he said.

Another volunteer, erstwhile ABS-CBN Tacloban news head Sharon Carangue added, “Yolanda survivors kami, kaya we know how it feels sa nangangailangan ng tulong. Very fulfilling na mag-extend ng public service.”

In Iloilo, the turnover of 150 sacks of rice, 4,500 canned sardines, and 3,000 beef loaves for the benefit of 1,500 families in the city was led by former ABS-CBN Iloilo news head Gemma Villanueva. Iloilo City mayor Jerry Treñas expressed his appreciation and gratitude to the Kapamilya network through his official Facebook page.

“We are grateful for ABS-CBN’s ‘Kapamilya spirit’ to provide aid to our fellow Ilonggos in need. Madamu guid nga salamat. Batò lang kita. Uswag Iloilo,” he said.

ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN Foundation began working with local government units and the private sector in March to deliver relief goods to families unable to make a living due to the community quarantine.

As of September 23, 2020, the campaign has distributed a total of Php 455,185,989 worth of goods to over 910,000 family beneficiaries. This has been made possible with the support of valued donors and partners.

It has extended its areas of distribution from the National Capital Region (NCR) to selected provinces all over the country — Bacolod, Bataan, Batangas, Bulacan, Camarines Sur, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Laguna, Negros Occidental, Nueva Ecija, Oriental Mindoro, Pangasinan, Quezon, Rizal, Sorsogon, Tacloban, Pampanga, and Zambales.

ABS-CBN Foundation continues to call for donations to “Pantawid ng Pag-ibig: Isang Daan. Isang Pamilya.” as areas remain under community quarantine in different parts of the nation.
