While different parts of the country set up their local community pantries, one guy actually secretly made a ~huge~ donation to the very first one in Maginhawa Street.
Erwan Heussaff actually gave $2,000 or around P96,000 to the initiative. Some eagle-eyed netizens actually spotted his name among the list of donors on the crowdfunding page by organizer Ana Patricia Non.
"The #CommunityPantryPH just raised $10,792 USD!!!" tweeted user @juswatiyan, who included screenshots of Erwan's name on the page. "I just need to mention this celeb guy who silently supported this cause. Mabuhay ang mga organizers ng mga community pantries!"
Erwan is just one among many celebs who have made a contribution to a community pantry. Others like Gabbi Garcia and Angel Locsin have also spearheaded the formation of community pantries in different barangays to help collect donations and provide free pantry essentials to those in dire need.
This isn't the first time that Erwan has supported a cause from his own pocket. In March, he and his wife Anne Curtis raised funds for UNICEF. The couple actually promised to match whatever amount would be generated. When the funds reached P800,000, they actually donated an additional ~one million pesos~ themselves.
On March 25, Angel and Anne's Shop And Share project—which sold stars' pre-loved items to donate COVID-19 testing kits—amassed P6 million in funds from the donations of 44 entertainment personalities. The money was equally divided among Baguio City, Manila, Pasig City, Taguig City, and Quezon City, as well as the Philippine Red Cross.
