Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. (PCPPI), the exclusive bottler and distributor of PepsiCo and Lotte beverages in the Philippines, continues to respond to the needs of frontline health workers in need of staying hydrated during their shifts amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
PCPPI donated more than 25,000 assorted drinks to hospitals attending to COVID-19 patients. The drinks were sent to Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) in Muntinlupa City, Dr. Jose Natalio Rodriguez Memorial Hospital in Caloocan, Philippine General Hospital (PGH), Lung Center of the Philippines, Veterans Memorial Medical Center, De los Santos Medical Center, and PNP General Hospital in Quezon City. They also sent cases of bottled water to the new quarantine facilities in World Trade Center and Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.
“Our work is nothing compared to the bravery and sacrifices of our medical workers and other frontliners. Through our drinks, we hope that we are able to uplift their spirits during these challenging times. This is to show them that we care for them and that we are one with them in this fight to save lives,” said Frederick Ong, president and CEO of PCPPI.
This is the second major round of donations that PCPPI has conducted for frontline heroes. The first one was for the frontliners manning checkpoints, serving local government units (LGUs), and health workers nationwide. The company donated close to 8,000 cases of drinks and lent 122 tents for checkpoints.
The company is continuously coordinating with LGUs and hospitals for distribution of their donations to areas and medical institutions that need urgent assistance.
