Tiangco1THE City Government of Navotas started Wednesday the distribution of 5 kilos of rice and one whole chicken to each Navoteño family in line with the city’s celebration of its 116th founding anniversary.

Mayor Toby Tiangco, Congressman John Rey Tiangco and other city and barangay officials led the first day of distribution the 116th Navotas Day “Regalo Para sa Pamilyang Navoteño.”

Some 14,157 families from barangays Tangos North and South were the first to receive the said food packs.

The city government purchased in December 2021 – 80,317 packs of rice and chicken for the whole of Navotas.

“The distribution was scheduled on January 14-16 as part of the week-long activities for Navotas Day. We deferred it to focus on the house-to-house delivery of medicines and vitamins,” Mayor Tiangco said.

The city government handed out paracetamol, phenylpropanolamine, and vitamin C to 87,315 Navoteño families.

“We thank Navoteños for patiently waiting for us to bring our Navotas Day ‘regalo’ to them. We also thank everyone who helped make this activity a success – from the purchase of the items to the receipt from suppliers to the delivery to each Navoteño family,” Mayor Tiangco said.
