Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI), the country’s largest rotisserie chicken company, has handed out almost 40,000 live chicken to residents in Dumanjug, Cebu to help them recover from the devastation of Typhoon Odette.
The Chooks-to-Go operator worked throughout the weekend to deliver the chicken to locals whose livelihoods and food supply had been severely affected by the typhoon.
BAVI President Ronald Mascariñas said the donation was part of the company’s ongoing campaign to support typhoon victims.
“We want to express our closeness to our kababayans in the Visayas and Mindanao, where our business originated,” said Mascariñas. “They can trust that our teams in their communities will continue to serve them and do business with them. It is through cooperation that we can overcome any adversity we face.”
The chief executive also thanked Dumanjug Mayor Gungun Gica for the opportunity to serve his constituents.
Last month BAVI committed to help employees whose homes were damaged or destroyed by the storm. Reconstruction costing almost half a million pesos is now ongoing.
Meanwhile the company also continues its food assistance campaign among groups severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week charities in Batangas and Cavite received supplies of dressed chicken to help keep them food-secure.
The Our Lady of Perpetual Help Children’s Home in Taal, Batangas and the Sisters of Mary School Girlstown in Silang, Cavite were given tons of chicken from Chooks-to-Go. The donations were crucial to charitable organizations as pandemic-related restrictions often limit donations they receive.
“Especially now that we are facing uncertainty due to new COVID variants, living out our Purpose of loving our country becomes paramount,” added Mascariñas.
