Mayor Florido sends aid to stranded constituents in Lucena
LUCENA CITY – Mayor Matt Florido of Gen. Luna town in Quezon province on Thursday reached out to his constituents who are stranded here since a total lockdown was imposed two weeks ago to check the rising number of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infections.
Florido sent a team to bring them relief goods, each pack containing 10 kg. of rice, six cans of sardines, and six packs of instant noodles.
The relief goods, according to him, were worth PHP280,000.
Before sending the aid, Florido turned to Facebook in calling out to his townmates to know how many of them are here.
His administrator, Angela Faith Florido, and a staff member had a sleepless Wednesday as they finished encoding and sorting out the names of those who would be given relief packs, with a final tally of 408 people.
On Thursday morning, the relief team from Gen. Luna traveled to Lucena City to deliver the food assistance.
Florido said the aid may not be much but he was hoping it could tide over the stranded natives of his town.
Those stranded included students and workers, either staying with some relatives or in dormitories.
