On 29 December, a fire hit a residential area in Purok 2, Barangay Culiat in Quezon City. It reached fifth alarm and displaced about 100 families.
JAAF handed out family food packs for those affected by the destructive fire on 7 January. Lilibeth Flores and Allen Agudal, whose houses were razed, received the donations on behalf of the affected community.
Together with them were Barangay Culiat Kagawad Marichu Montehermoso, and Carlo Quilan, a Coordinator from the Office of Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte. Helen Valenzuela, Gallery Officer, represented J. Amado Araneta Foundation.
“Maraming salamat po sa J. Amado Araneta Foundation para sa binigay ninyo sa aming panimula. Nagpapasalamat kami ng lobs, at sana apo marami pa kayong matulungan. God bless po,” Lilibeth was quoted in saying.
