As Olongapo City Mayor James ‘Bong’ Gordon Jr’s present to Olongapenos on his 61st birthday celebration, a gift giving program was held on October 1, 2008 Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center. Over 5000 beneficiaries were given grocery items by Mayor Gordon and Vice Governor Anne Marie Gordon.

Government employees and other civic organizations helped organize the program. The beneficiaries were identified by the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), headed by Gene Eclarino.

“Ang sectoral group ng Olongapo ang binigyan katulad ng mga senior citizens, urban poor, parents sa day care centers, mga galing sa barangay at mga mula sa Balikatan,” said Eclarino. “Kahit yung pumila na walang tickets ay binigyan na rin nina Mayor dahil nakikita naman nila na deserving pa rin sila.”

“It’s a small thing, groceries at bigas pero kahit na ganoon ay makakatulong na yan dahil makakatipid sila sa kanilang pangangailangan kahit na sa ilang araw man lang. Ang gift giving na ito ay para sa mga mahihirap na constituents ng city, sa kanila talaga nakatuon ang programang ito.

“Sa pamamagitan ng mga programang tulad nito, tinutulungan ni Mayor Gordon ang mga mamamayan ng Olongapo na nasa lower sectors kahit sa paunti-unting paraan,” Eclarino added.

Meanwhile, Mayor Gordon’s social welfare programs for the indigent families of the city are still on high gear. It can be recalled that recently Mayor Gordon gave financial assistance to several families in need.
