The Polytechnic University of the Philippines San Juan Campus launched its community pantry dubbed as "Iskolar Community Pantry" on April 28, 2021.
According to PUP San Juan Head of Student Services Ms. Donna Arellano, even before the launching of Iskolar Community Pantry, they have already assisted their students, faculty members, employees, and nearby barangays. Ms. Arellano said that their first pantry was only open to the constituents of Barangay Addition Hills in San Juan to assess the safety measures and their capability to help.
The Iskolar Community Pantry organizers were encouraged by the virality of Maginhawa Community Pantry and inspired by the feasibility of PUP Lingap Komunidad.
"Bilang iskolar ng bayan ‘yan 'di ba yan ang ating talagang mantra is to help and give service to others" she said.
PUP San Juan Campus is open to those who want to help. For anyone wishing to donate, one can proceed to 223 Ortega St., Brgy Addition Hills San Juan.
