Real-life Kapuso couple Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo once again bring back their donation drive ‘Startruck’ this time to help Filipinos affected by the onslaught of Typhoon Odette.


‘Startruck’ serves as a mobile donation drop off where designated vehicles go straight to the donors’ homes to pick up their in-kind donations.


“After picking up the items, we will then turn it over to our partner organizations who has the capacity or the logistics to ship it to the affected areas,” explained Jennylyn.


“All cash and in-kind donations will be sent out to victims in Cebu, Siargao, Bohol, Palawan, Negros, and Southern Leyte. Our team is constantly coordinating to partners on-ground to make sure we deliver their immediate needs given their respective situations,” added Dennis.


The Kapuso couple first launched Startruck in November 2020 to help the victims of then Typhoon Ulysses.


“At that time, there were many donated goods but one of the main concern was how to transport it on site since vehicles can barely enter the area due to the devastation created by the typhoon. So Dennis and I thought why don’t we provide a 10-wheeler truck that can help send out these goods especially to the smaller communities,” recounted Jen.


Startruck is still accepting cash and in-kind donations. For more information, visit its official Instagram page at
