A donation drive for the benefit of Barangay Addition Hills in Mandaluyong City was recently launched by Cheer UP Pinoy (CUP), a nationwide service event of the student organization UP Academic League of Chemical Engineering Students (UP ALCHEMES).
“CUP-it Bisig 2020” (CUP-it Bisig), launched on Aug. 12, aims to help Brgy. Addition Hills residents who were gravely affected by the fire incident in the barangay and the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to CUP’s Facebook page post, they plan to distribute relief packs on the first week of September to families who were also left homeless amid the COVID-19 pandemic after a fire incident broke in Correctional Road and Block 30, Brgy. Addition Hills last Jun. 6. From the reported 200 families who survived the fire, a significant number are currently living in tents in the temporary evacuation center at the Nueve De Pebrero Elementary School.
The team is accepting monetary or in-kind donations such as food and toiletries. All cash proceeds will be used to buy goods for the relief packs and the distribution will be done with the help of Urban Poor Affairs Office – Mandaluyong.
As of Aug. 19, the CUP-it Bisig team received a total amount of P12, 054.06 which is 23.18 percent of their P52,000 goal.
