More than 700 Pattaya-area residents received bags of food and supplies to help them during the coronavirus recession.
Banglamung District Chief Wuttisak Singhadecho kicked off the Sept. 17 donation event at Nong Ket Yai Temple with Nong Plalai Mayor Pinyo Homklin.
Goods were donated by Criminal Case Office 1, Office of Public Prosecution Region 2, Banglamung Police Station, Papa Run Motorcycle Club, Mini Siam Motorcycle Club, and Mae Wilai Market.
Recipients hailed from the subdistricts surrounding Pattaya, including Nongprue, Pong, Nong Plalai and Banglamung.
Those receiving aid were nominated by village chiefs, with distribution split between Nong Ket Yai and Nong Ket Noi temples.
The Thai Red Cross also gave bags to three bedridden residents.
