CALOOCAN City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan personally awarded 43 sari-sari store packages to Caloocan City residents as part of the celebration of his 43rd birthday.

According to the local chief executive, he wishes to help the winners start with a micro-business, aiding their daily needs.

“Sa aking ika-43 na kaarawan, hatid nati’y 43 na pangkabuhayan para sa ating mga kababayan. Ilan po sa mga nanalo’y senior citizen, PWD, solo parent at may mga karamdaman. Ang iba naman po’y lumalaban nang patas sa gitna ng krisis bilang padyak, security guard at dating tindera na nawalan ng puhunan dulot ng pandemya,” the Mayor said.

“Hiling natin na makatulong itong panimula sa inyong maliit na negosyo at pantustos sa inyong pang araw-araw na gastusin,” he added.

Moreover, Mayor Along called on the winners to help others, in whatever small way they can.

“Tulad po ng sinabi natin kanina, hiling ko lang na mapalago niyo ito at balang araw, maibalik niyo ang tulong na ito sa inyong kapwa. Keep kindness going,” he said.

The said promotion was done in coordination with the Public Information Office, General Services Department, Public Safety and Traffic Management Department, City Engineering Department, and Office of the General Manager-North.
