The pantry which would continue until Sunday, November 21, opens from 8 a.m to 5 p.m.
Oponganons, who shopped at the pantry, will be given coupons by the personnel from Radaza’s office for prizes at Radaza’s booth in the gym such as 1 kilo of rice, mugs, alcohol, face masks, toys, among others.
Sherlita Buro, a Buaya resident, said she shopped at the pantry because it was very near to their house and to save a little money.
Buro was able to win a toy from Radaza’s booth.
