San Fernando mayor donates 6-month salary for gift-giving program

San Fernando City Mayor Vilma Caluag revealed that she is donating her salary since June to supplement the budget for the city government’s gift-giving program.

“‘Yung sweldo ko kasi ng anim buwan i-share ko rin para mas marami at mabigyan lahat,” the mayor said in a Sun Star Pampanga report.

Caluag did not disclose the total amount. A city mayor is under Salary Grade 30, and receives a minimum of P185,695 per month, or at least P1.1-million for six months, according to the report.

SHe said packing and distribution of the food packs to most needy families in the city had already started over the weekend.

Each pack contains a spaghetti package, cheese, loaf bread, Christmas ham, and sterilized milk.

She said they are targeting to finish the distribution before December 22.

“Hinihintay lang namin ‘yung data mula sa barangay captains natin pero hopefully bago December 2022 matapos na para ready na ang pang Noche Buena ng bawat Fernandino,” Caluag said in the Sun Star report.

Aside from food packs, Caluag said the local government also awarded P10,000 each over the weekend to 280 dialysis patients in the city.

“Nadelay kasi ang opening ng dialysis center natin dahil pending pa ang approval ng DOH kaya nagbigay na muna tayo ng pangdialysis at pamasko na rin nila,” she said in the report.
