BROTHERS BURGER'S FOOD DONATION DRIVE FOR FRONTLINERS

 

Local hamburger chain Brothers Burger is inviting concerned citizens to help feed frontliners. 

"Since the COVID-19 outbreak, we have been doing our best to provide meals for our frontliners," said Brothers Burger president DJ Jose. 

"We would like to take this opportunity to invite people who want to pitch in to help feed the frontliners," he added. "When we say 'frontliners' we do not only mean the doctors, nurses, and other healthcare specialists but also the security forces on 24/7 duty. They, too, are sacrificing a lot and are putting themselves in harm’s way."

Jose said customers can donate P75 for a burger rice meal and P185 for a classic Brothers burger as he provided their bank accounts, which are also available on the chain's Facebook page.
