The Quezon City Government on Tuesday, June 29, expressed its gratitude to Kapamilya actor Arjo Atayde for donating service vehicles that were distributed to the different barangays in the city’s first district.
On its social media pages, the QC Government shared photos of the turnover ceremony, which was held at the Quezon Memorial Circle and led by Mayor Joy Belmonte. Also present were Councilors TJ Calalay, Doray Delarmente, Ollie Belmonte, Mayen Juico, Bernard Herrera, Jun Ferrer, Kgd. Charm Ferrer, and Secretary to the Mayor RJ Belmonte.
Based on its post, the first batch of the service vehicles were distributed to the following barangays: Brgy. NS Amoranto, Brgy. Manresa, Brgy. Paang Bundok, Brgy. St. Peter, Brgy. Sto. Cristo, Brgy. Maharlika, Brgy. San Antonio, Brgy. San Jose, and Brgy. Vasra.
"Ang mga sasakyang ito ay magagamit ng ating mga barangay upang makapaghatid serbisyo at aksyon agad sa kanilang paglilingkod sa bayan," QC Gov. said.
In the comments section, many netizens praised and thanked Arjo for his donation.
"Wow naman!!! Pogi na mabait pa. Thank you idol, Arjo Atayde at talagang nakikipagtulungan ka kay mayora para sa kapakakanan ng mga taga QC," one netizen said.
"'Yan ang may malasakit. Nagkukusa, hindi na kailangan magpa-pogi sa oras ng pangangailangan ng mga tao. Sabi nga magbigay ayon sa kakayahan," another added.
Arjo, 30, was recently seen in the "Stethoscope" and "Bracelet" episodes of the ABS-CBN drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya.
In 2019, he starred in the iWant Original Series Bagman" for which he won best actor at the Asian Academy Creative Awards last year. The action-drama series will become available for viewing on the giant streaming platform Netflix starting July 9.
