200 first graders who reside in Taniman, Sitio Talanay were elated to receive a backpack, a plastic envelope, a pad paper, a notebook, a pencil, an eraser, a ruler, a box of crayons and a sharpener each at the Taniman Covered Court on May 23, 2016 (Monday) at 10:00 AM.
Tagged as “Gamit Mo, Sagot Namin,” this distribution of school supplies was made possible through the sponsorship of Captain John “Jojo” M. Abad, his council and the Task Force on Youth Development (TFYD).
The event, which took place for over an hour, was definitely substantial as the following people expressed messages of encouragement and inspiration, not only to the children of the less fortunate families, but also to the striving parents:
Kagawad Edgar “Junjun” S. Macario, Jr.;
Kgd. Charlie O. Mangune and his daughter, Miss Charo Mangune; and,
Kgd. Ernesto “Ernie” S. Custodio.
Also present in this back-to-school project were Barangay Secretary Edwin P. Misolas and Bgy. Administrative Assistant Adonis O. Monahan. The program was emceed by Purok Leader Tess Nator.
