Walang kaibigan, kaaway: Vico Sotto: 400K Christmas goodie bags up for grabs
Some 400,000 families in Pasig will receive Christmas gift bags from the local government, Mayor Vico Sotto announced this week.
In a Facebook post, Sotto said the number of Christmas gift bag recipients is up from 180,000 last year, when the mayor was Bobby Eusebi.
“Last year: 180,000, karamihan sa mga organisasyon; Ngayon: 400,000 packs, bahay-bahay, walang pulitika, kahit di supporter meron!” he said.
Sotto said the city government has put in place a system that will not only allow for the efficient distribution of Christmas gift bags, but also the collection of residents’ data.
The system will also be used for the delivery of basic government services to the community, particularly with regard to health.
“Sa ibang salita: The Christmas gift bags of today🎄🎁 will bring the data-driven policy-making of tomorrow,” Sotto said.
