Local Council for Women reaches out to landslide victims

The Local Council for Women (LCW) will be handing out an assistance of grocery items and one (1) sack of rice, all costing two thousand pesos (2,000) as well as a cash of five hundred forty pesos (540) to fifteen pre-selected families this May 4, 2012, 9:00 am at the City Hall lobby. These families were those who were greatly affected by the landslides in Barangay Bunu-anan and Brgy. 08 Poblacion early this year.

The assistance worth PhP 2,540.00 allocated for each family came from the proceeds of the benefit dinner organized by the LCW in partnership with the New Life Christian Center, as a closing activity of the Women’s Month Celebration last March. Out of the the fundraising dinner, which was dubbed as Dinner for a Cause, the organizers were able to raise a sum of PhP 38,100 from donations of PhP 1,000 from the invitees who were mostly private individuals from the business community and other partner agencies.
