July 16 & 23, 2021

As one of its many outreach programs initiated in response to the global pandemic, the University launched the Hawak Kamay: Pantry of Blessings intended for distribution of relief goods, July 16, 2021 at Brgy. Catmon City of Malolos, Bulacan and July 23, 2021 at LCUP, Doña Estefaña Bldg., Barasoain Campus.

The Hawak Kamay: Pantry of Blessings consists of goods from relief packs that were waived by some LCUP employees from the recently conducted CoViD-19 relief operations last April-May 2021. The said pantry was organized by the Mother Rita Barcelo Outreach Program (MRBOP) under the Office of the Vice President for Religious and Spiritual Formation and Extension.Read More ...

A total of 100 relief packs were distributed to 100 indigent families in Brgy. Catmon. Each relief pack contains three kilograms of rice, four canned goods, three instant noodles, and face masks. Before the distribution of goods started, a food pantry dedication liturgy was facilitated by the Integral Evangelization Program Department.

In line with the ongoing vaccination program in the City of Malolos, the University also coordinated with the local government unit in temporarily converting the LCUP Doña Estefaña Bldg. in Barasoain Campus into a CoViD-19 vaccination site. There were LCUP personnel who volunteered to provide assistance in the said program and distribute relief packs to 22 frontline workers at the same time.

The University, as the global pandemic continuously poses a health crisis in the world, is still looking forward to launch the Hawak Kamay: Pantry of Blessings in other partner communities on the coming months as well. Hide
