Mayor Laarni Cayetano has started distributing Noche Buena packs in the barangays as part of the city government’s annual Christmas gift-giving program for residents.
Some 30,000 Noche Buena packs went to residents of Barangays Fort Bonifacio, Pinagsama and North Signal Village on the first day of the city’s “Pamaskong Handog Program.”
This was followed by gifting of 40,000 pack to beneficiaries gathered in different venues across Barangays Katuparan, South Signal Village, Central Signal Village, and Maharlika Village.
Some 19,000 Noche Buena packs were also distributed in Barangays South Daang Hari, North Daang Hari, and Tanyag, and 48,000 packs were brought across Barangays Western Bicutan, Upper Bicutan, and Central Bicutan.
Cayetano said the gift-giving is scheduled to “go around all the barangays of the ‘probinsyudad,’ a small token for the love residents have given Taguig City in the past year.”
Meanwhile, the Taguig City police is rolling out measures that will ensure a safe and peaceful Christmas season in the city.
Cayetano has directed the police to lay out plans that will prepare the city for the holiday season, including the security of local residents, students and people working in the city.
The police plan will include the security of shopping areas, including the Bonifacio Global City where thousands of people come to daily for work and leisure.
The city chief executive also ordered police to heighten the security at the city’s business districts to make sure workers, including those in the business process outsourcing industry, are secured even during at night.
Regular patrols in the city will increase police visibility in public places and preempt crimes, Cayetano added.
