Some 30, 000 indigent families, Persons with Disabilities and Senior Citizens will each receive P 500.00 cash as Pamaskong Handog from the City Government.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said that since he assumed office the number of recipients for the annual cash gift has significantly increased every year.
About P 15 million was appropriated for this year’s Pamaskong Handog to be distributed based on the following guidelines:
1.Each indigent family, senior citizen and PWD is entitled to receive P 500.00 cash gift
2.The recipients must be residents of the barangay
3.The Punong Barangay will submit the list to the City Social
Welfare Office for verification along with the Identification Cards (driver’s license, senior citizens ID, PWD ID, voter’s ID, etc.)
4.Each recipient is advised to wait for the date of distribution per barangay
Mayor Remollo has directed the City Social Welfare Office and the barangays to ensure that the cash gifts will be released to qualified beneficiaries before Christmas Day.
City Social Welfare and Development Officer Lilibeth Filipinas said the actual date of distribution of the cash gift will be announced once all the documents and payrolls are submitted and processed.
