Double purpose! Former Antipolo Mayor Jun Ynares and family buy relief goods from sari-sari stores
The Ynareses of Antipolo hit two birds with one stone during their recent relief drive for typhoon victims.
This was because they bought the relief goods they distributed from local sari-sari stores.
In a Facebook post, former Mayor Jun Ynares said this had the effect of supporting local businesses while also allowing them to help the residents affected by the floods.
His children and nieces held a fundraising upon seeing the effects of the typhoon, and were able to collect P400,000 through their efforts.
They invited him to go shopping for coffee, rice, canned goods, and other essentials.
He thought they would go to a supermarket, but instead, they hit one sari-sari store after another.
They also bought face masks and face shields from the public market, as well as pairs of shorts from a local clothes maker.
It didn’t matter that buying from smaller stores was a bit more expensive.
What’s important is they were able to help small enterprises while assisting typhoon victims!
“Matapos makita ng aking mga anak at pamangkin ang nangyari sa Montalban, San Mateo at Marikina, nag fund raising agad sila. Sa awa ng Diyos, nakalikom sila ng halos 400,000. Niyaya nila akong mamili ng kape, bigas, de lata, sabon, shampoo, sipilyo, tooth paste, sanitary napkins, kumot, atbp. Akala ko sa pure gold kami pupunta. Yun pala, sa iba’t-ibang sari-sari stores para daw kahit mas mahal ng kaunti, madami naman daw matutulungan na mga maliliit na negosyante. Tama naman 👏👏👏 (Hindi ko yan tinuruan 😂). Matapos nilang mamili ng banig, face shield at face mask sa palengke ng Taytay, tumungo na kami sa mga sari-sari stores sa Samagta, Floodway A, Brgy San Juan para bilhin ang iba pang mga plano nilang dalhin sa evacuation centers. Sa gitna ng aming pag iikot sa dose-dosenang sari-sari stores, na daan din kami sa isang tahian ng shorts kaya bumili sila ng kulang-kulang 1,000 nito. Salamat po sa kanilang mga kaibigan na nag donate. Matapos po nilang balutin mamayang gabi, diretso na po sila sa mga evacuation centers,” Ynares posted.
