The Catanduanes Bayanihan Movement launched on April 12, 2020 (Easter Sunday), 7:30am at the Catanduanes State University (CatSU) headed by SUC President III, Dr. Minerva I. Morales, a “share and take booth” for those economically deprived as a result of the current Corona Virus Disease-19 (CoViD) pandemic. The project has its “Take or Share Booth” set up infront of the CatSU from 7:30am until 9:30am, three times in a week starting at the launching date. During said serving time, recipients are free to get one packed rice and another one or two provision of choice available for the taking at the booth. Future dates and venues of the Bayanihan will be announced later as revealed by the Bayanihan movement. Target of the said initiative are the less fortunate families or individuals that are hard-hit during the period of quarantine due to the CoViD-19 pandemic, now sweeping across the globe. The Catanduanes Bayanihan Movement at CatSU benefitted more than 150 families in its first wave of assistance on Easter Sunday, as reported. Other CatSU officials, faculty members and non-teaching employees were likewise on hand during the launching, said to be the first wave of said initiative.
The Movement knocks spiritedly to more generous hearts in the locality (or even outside the province) to pledge or share either in cash donations or in kind for sustaining the succeeding provisions that can be availed for free by needy individuals or families in the province who have been caught haplessly in the middle of the CoviD-19 crisis. The appeal for everyone’s support, especially alumni of the CatSU, is shown in the Movement’s set-up FACEBOOK PAGE, “CATANDUANES BAYANIHAN MOVEMENT.” Please feel free to visit the page and/or contact key officers thereof. On the other hand, the CatSU Bayanihan Movement (Take or Share Project) EXTENDS ITS SINCEREST APPRECIATIONS AND GRATITUDE TO THE DONORS OF ITS FIRST WAVE OF SUPPORT to the various recipients in the locality. It continuously counts on your generosity to keep the flame of love and compassion for the needy ablaze and heal everyone’s deep longing for care and a lending hand to feed both body and soul in these trying times. We ask for your unceasing support, as we BIND AS ONE in Bayanihan spirit. Maraming Salamat po.
