Tan Siu Lin Foundation, the charitable arm of TanHoldings, donated $18,000 worth of relief goods to Empty Vessel Ministry Foundation (EVMF) last Thursday, May 14, 2020 at the ministry’s office in Gualo Rai, Saipan.
TanHoldings CEO and President Jerry Tan and TSL Foundation Executive Director Merlie Tolentino handed over the canned goods, cereals, milk, and packs of fruit juices to EVMF president Rosalyn Ajoste that will help 500 families who are affected by the global pandemic.
“The Empty Vessel Ministry has consistently provided food assistance to members of our community. They were there when we had two strong typhoons and now, they are stepping up for families that are affected by this pandemic. Even on ordinary days, Empty Vessel keeps its door open to people in need. It takes a lot of effort and commitment to be able to provide assistance to the community yearlong so we’re fortunate to have the Empty Vessel Ministry in the CNMI,” Tolentino said.
“They are part of our very generous community and we, at the Tan Siu Lin Foundation is honored to help their program,” she added.
