Jennifer Lea Tan Uy (陳真妮) initially wanted to source Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for her CKS high school class of 1995 batchmates working in the frontline, but supplies were scarce.
As alternative, Daisy Yu Velasco, the batch treasurer, recommended to offer hot meals for medical frontliners using the commissary of her restaurant, Scorched Smokehouse, which was still open for take-out and delivery.
The batch agreed to the proposal, and utilized the services of Grab drivers to pick-up and deliver to the hospitals.
An initial delivery of 300 meals was distributed to Manila Medical Center, Chinese General Hospital, and UST Hospital, where batchmates were working.
Another set of 300 meals were later delivered to other hospitals, imcluding Philippine Orthopedic Center, San Lazaro Hospital, Metropolitan Medical Center, St. Jude Hospital, and Sta. Teresita Hospital.
The batch also turned over 100 pieces of N95 masks to their frontliners batchmates.
This is the Bayanihan spirit of CKS high school batch '95, made possible with the support of its officers Brian Francis Uy, Robert Pangilinan, Bernette Romualdez, Daisy Yu Velasco, Richard So, Lizbeth Chan, and other batchmates.
