As part of addressing common concerns in this time of pandemic and giving back to the community, the 021 Maker Space Dream Incubator coworking space, conducted its very first Community Outreach Program on September 12, 2020, with the theme “We Care, We Share. Together We Can Do Best.”
The said community event was done in participation with the Philippine Dragon Media Network (PDMN) and XBistro Laboratory.
The chosen beneficiaries are the poor families of Barangay 282, San Nicolas, Manila, the Medical Frontliners of Justice Jose Abad Santos General Hospital in Binondo, Manila, and some street dwellers in the areas of Binondo, Sta. Cruz and Intramuros.
A total of 200 poor families of Barangay 282 benefited from the 021 Maker Space community outreach program. Each family received a food bag with rice, canned goods, instant noodles, and a face shield.
The activity at the barangay was realized with the support of Barangay 282 Chairman Steven Yap and Council. The 021Maker Space coworking team donated 4 gallons of alcohol to the barangay and a certificate of appreciation was handed to Chairman Yap for their assistance in ensuring a smooth and peaceful event.
Also, with the help of the volunteers from Starlight Business Consulting Services, the coworking space team were able to randomly distribute a total of 100 food bags to the poor street dwellers along Binondo, Sta. Cruz and Intramuros, Manila.
Furthermore, as a part of the O21 Maker Space coworking community outreach program, they donated a total of 100 meal packs, cooked with love by XBistro Laboratory, to the Medical Frontliners of Justice Jose Abad Santos General Hospital in Urbiztondo St, Manila.
Aside from the food packs, a Certificate of Appreciation was handed to thank the hospital frontliners for their selflessness and for relentlessly fighting against the Covid19 virus.
“We know that what we gave to our poor fellows and the medical frontliners today were not enough, but we hope that our small gesture could make a difference to them,” according to the 021 Maker Space coworking representative.
