City of San Fernando receives ‘Gulong ng Karunungan’ vehicles

THE City Government of San Fernando on Monday received two multi-purpose cabs dubbed “Gulong ng Karunungan” from the Philseven Foundation Inc., a corporate social responsibility arm of the 7-Eleven operators in the Philippines.

Mayor Edwin Santiago, Councilor Nelson Lingat and 7-Eleven Philippines president Steve Chen signed a memorandum of agreement and Deed of Donation/Acceptance for the formal turnover of the vehicles to the local government.

The “Gulong ng Karunungan” cabs which are equipped with educational materials and school supplies will serve as mobile for Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) targeting children ages 0 to 4.

Assistant City Social Welfare and Development officer Aileen Villanueva said the vehicles will be deployed in Barangay Del Pilar and Northville due to the absence of ECCD facilities in their area.

“We will also be sending volunteers who will teach our beneficiaries on a daily basis until they complete an entire school year,” she added.

Santiago extended his gratitude to the foundation for choosing the City of San Fernando as their beneficiary, first in Pampanga.

“Your extended help for our Fernandino children will matter a lot to them not because of the provision of material gains but because of the lifetime seeding of knowledge and life skills that will enable them to live a better life,” he added.

The mayor together with the City Councilors and department heads led the blessing of 22 newly acquired vehicles of the local government unit.

Among these are a fire truck, a tow truck, military jeeps, and police patrols that will be utilized to enhance the city’s peace and order and public safety.
