Manny Pacquiao is in the holiday mood. Being a congressman in the Philippines, he is used to serving the people. As reported by the Manila Standard Today, Manny Pacquiao was handing out turkeys and pies to the needy in the Los Angeles area. Pacquiao is currently training in Los Angeles in preparation for a December 8th fight and also has a home in the area.
Pacquiao was distributing turkeys at the Westside Shepherd of the Hills Church along with his team. A great gesture from the Filipino boxer to show his support to the local community that has embraced him. This is not the first time he has gone out of his way to help out the needy. When the typhoon hit in the Philippines, he stopped his training and provided monetary aid to victims.
The Filipino boxer is known to be a giver. Nike even released a “Ninong Knows” t-shirt design. The word “ninong” translates from Filipino to English as godfather. In a way, they become an important figure in a young person’s life who provides them with gifts and assistance throughout their life. He also has a show in the Philippines where he gives out money to contestants.
