Wes Gatchalian gives away rice to teachers, tricycle drivers
Teachers and tricycle drivers in Valenzuela’s second district received an early Christmas gift when Rep. Wes Gatchalian visited them to give away sacks of rice.
Around 750 individuals from the General Parents and Teachers Association (GPTA) and Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA) received rice and had the chance to join a raffle sponsored by Gatchalian.
One of the coveted prizes raffled away at the event were 10 bicycles, which the winners could use for traveling or livelihood.
In a Facebook post, Gatchalian expressed optimism that Valenzuela residents are on their way to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Patuloy ang ating pagsusumikap at paghahanap ng paraan upang makatulong sa mga Valenzuelanong lubhang naapektuhan ng pandemya,” he said.
