- The Christ­mas spirit is re­ally in the air as the lo­cal gov­ern­ment here yes­ter­day dis­trib­uted cash grants to in­di­gent per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties ( PWDs) .

Some 50 PWDs from dif­fer­ent barangays in this town re­ceived P2,000 fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance each from the Mu­nic­i­pal So­cial Wel­fare and De­vel­op­ment Of­fice as part of the Christ­mas party pro­gram.

The award­ing was led by Mayor Peter Nu­com who re­minded PWDs and their par­ents that the hol­i­day season must cel­e­brated with love and peace to­gether with their fam­i­lies.

He noted that the cash grant is only a small amount but will help in the med­i­cal needs and other ne­ces­si­ties of the PWD ben­e­fi­cia­ries.

The PWDs, mean­while, ex­tended their grat­i­tude to the lo­cal gov­ern­ment for the con­tin­u­ous sup­port and as­sis­tance given to them.
