In April 2021, Ana Patricia Non's idea of setting up a cart where people in need can get essential goods like rice and vegetables inspired the nation to turn it into an entire movement. Within days, other non-profit organizations and individuals have taken the initiative to set up their own community pantries to support countrymen severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its quarantine restrictions. One of whom is a third-year student from Far Eastern University, Angelee Nebab, who is currently helping countless families located near Oxford St., Cubao, Quezon City. She does this while juggling other responsibilities such as attending online classes and fulfilling school requirements.
But the concept of sharing resources with the community isn't new to this Psychology major. Even before the pandemic started, Angelee had already been providing home-cooked meals to families along Aurora Blvd. Learn more about Angelee and her passion projects for the community in this video below:
Despite having difficulties managing the growing number of people who visit them, Angelee and her family members simply use this to motivate themselves to grow their initiative. Luckily, the people who visit the Oxford Community Pantry strictly observe proper COVID-19 safety protocols, making it easier for Angelee to manage day-to-day operations.
To send out donations to the Oxford Community Pantry, you may message Angelee Grace Nebab on Facebook or contact her at 09959914764.
