ANGELES CITY — Some 2,213 Day Care students will receive new school supplies from the city government here including shoes, T-shirt, and bags with notebooks and pencils, while their parents will receive grocery packs which include five kilos of rice and canned goods.
Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. will lead the distribution to the 76 Day Care centers beginning on January 9, 2023, which will kick-off in Barangays Sto. Domingo and San Jose. Distribution in the remaining barangays will be via schedule.
“Lahat po ng Day Care students natin makakatanggap ng school supplies. Para po ito sa lahat ng mga kabataang mag-aaral natin,” Lazatin said.
Meanwhile, Lazatin’s Chief Adviser IC Calaguas said: “Ipinaguutos po ni Mayor Lazatin na bukod sa ipapamigay na furniture at school supplies, bibigyan din po yung mga magulang ng food assistance,” Calaguas said. “Para po ito sa mga magulang natin na all around sa kanilang mga anak.”
To join Mayor Lazatin in the distribution are the City Nutrition Office headed by Jermaine Jam Aguila and Gender and Development Officer Mina Cabiles.
Calaguas furthered that the administration of Mayor Lazatin will remain true to its promise of providing free and quality education to the Day Care centers.
To recall, Mayor Lazatin distributed the school supplies to all the public elementary, junior, and senior high schools, benefitting 93,053 students.
This is the first in the city as well in the Pampanga province that a local government unit had distributed school supplies.
“Napakalaking tulong po ito para sa mga kabataan nating Day Care students. Maraming salamat po Mayor Lazatin sa libreng sapatos, T-shirts, at bags na may mga school supplies na bibigay ninyo sa mga Day Care students,” City Social Welfare and Development Officer Edna Duaso said.
“Mula po noong maupo po si Mayor Lazatin, binigyan niya po kaagad ng prayoridad ang mga Child Development Centers natin at ipinaayos po ang mga ito. Hindi rin po matawaran ang mga incentives na ibinahagi niya sa mga Day Care Workers natin,” Duaso added.
