Olongapo City First Lady and Zambales Vice-Governor Anne Marie Gordon has launched “Abot-Kayang Bigas Program” on February 22, 2010 at Marikit Park for the benefit of the less fortunate residents of Olongapo.

“We want to uplift the condition of our fellow Olongapeños, and through this program we can help them purchase goods at a reduced price,” FL Anne Gordon said.

The “Abot-kayang Bigas” program is the expansion of the “Tindahan Natin Outlet” program which started in 2008 catering to Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) and senior citizens in the city.

With the program now expanded with more beneficiaries, more positive comments are being reaped by the City Social Welfare and Development Office headed by Gene Eclarino and its 12 volunteers which consist of PWDs and Senior Citizens, supervised by PWD Elsie Valencia.

“Mura na ang bigas, konbinyente pa ang lugar namin, hindi kami naiinitan at nakaupo pa kami habang nag-aantay ng aming turn,” Maryjane Mendigorin of Blk 20 Gordon Heights said.

“The program aims to help indigents to meet their basic needs, especially when it comes to rice consumption, from P18.25 our commercial rice is now P16.75,” Gene Eclarino revealed.

The “Abot-kayang Bigas” program supplies commercial rice everyday, 1pm to 5pm at Marikit Park.
