MARAWI CITY, 19 June  (PIA) – The Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) in Iligan City distributed 5,000 food packs to the Philippine Army and PNP personnel in Marawi City on Sunday, June 18, in time for the celebration of Father’s Day.

The activity is part of JFC’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) by implementing programs that address access to education, livelihood development, leadership development and disaster response.

Major Malvin Ligutan, executive officer of the 51st Infantry Battalion, Philippine Army lauded the efforts of the company for distributing food packs to government troops.

“Lubos po ang aming pasasalamat sa JFC na nagbigay ng mga pagkain sa ating mga sundalo at pulis at sa mga batang mag-aaral at ibang mga tao na nagpapadala ng ng sulat sa amin. Ang kanilang sulat ay nagpalakas sa moral ng mga sundalo na makipaglaban sa Maute terror group upang maprotektahan ang buhay ng mga civilians,” Ligutan said.

Natandog mi pag-ayo sa kaayo nga gipakita sa JFC ug sa mga nagtungha nga mga bata nga naggahin sa ilang panahon pagsulat kanamo sa ilang makapadasig nga mensahe. Dako ang among pagpasalamat kay giapil mi nila sa ilang mga pag-ampo ug nagpasalamat sila sa among gibuhat.  (We are deeply touched by the kindness of JFC and to the school children for spending time to write their inspiring messages to us),” Cpl. Warren Silla said.

“Happy Fathers’ Day! Dear soldiers, I have always admired the way you fought for our country and for our safety. In return, I would always put a room for prayer for your safety and welfare too. God bless and continue winning against evil,” Naica wrote in a yellow paper.

Another message from Tambacan SDA church reads, “Dear Mr. & Ms. Soldiers, I admire your strength and courage! God loves you!” (ALT/GCC/PIA9-Pagadian City)
