TARLAC CITY-Around 300 residents of barangay Bora in the capital city benefitted from the Christmas outreach cum people’s forum activity of the College of Computer Studies (CCS) of Tarlac State University (TSU) and Philippine Information Agency (PIA).
In the outreach, parents received Noche Buena items while their children got school supplies, which were courtesy of the provincial government.
Families likewise competed for prizes in the parlor games.
“Christmas is not just about receiving gifts. Beyond that, this season is about giving what we can and sharing what we have,” TSU-CCS Associate Dean Edjie Delos Reyes said.
“During the people’s forum, we had informed the parents who are mostly beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program of the various programs of the national government on health, education, agriculture, and livelihood. We shall relay some of the issues they had raised to concerned government agencies,” PIA Tarlac Provincial Manager Lorie Gene Cruz said.
