Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan said mining firm Philex has donated 200 sacks of rice as assistance to residents during the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
Mining is Itogon’s primary source of livelihood.
The Benguet politiko said Philex also gave 200 washable masks and 2,000 disposable gloves.
Palangdan lauded Philex for supporting Itogon during the crisis.
“We wish to express our appreciation to Philex Mining Corporation for their generosity in support to our emergency and relief operations,” he said.
“Maraming salamat po!” Palangdan added.
