Uling Roasters yesterday distributed warm meals to Ormoc City’s medical and security frontliners, heeding a call from national basketball team member Robert Bolick.
The 24-year-old Ormoc native had requested the support from Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) president Ronald Mascariñas, who immediately agreed.
“Gusto ko talaga tumulong sa mga kababayan ko sa Ormoc. Dun ako nanggaling e,” expressed Bolick.
“Gusto ko magpasalamat kay Boss Ronald kasi when I messaged him, hindi man lang tumagal ng one-minute, sumagot siya kagad. Hindi sila nag-hesitate,” Bolick said.
Appreciating this deed was none other than Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez.
“Salamat, Ronald, sa pinadala mo dito na Uling Roasters at kay Robert na hindi nakakalimutan kung saan siya nanggaling. It’s very good. Masarap talaga,” said Gomez.
“Thank you so much sa support na binigay ninyo sa amin. The people are very happy about the chicken.”
