Sta. Maria No. 1 Kagawad Abe Solis Tan played Santa Claus to some 650 indigent residents who trooped to his residence yesterday morning for his Christmas gift-giving.
The youthful barangay leader said earlier he went to different puroks in the said community such as Brillantes, Tabuk, Villa Sta.Maria, Galvez and main road and distributed coupons to the poor families for the gift-sharing.

Tan said plastic packs consisting of grocery items including small amount of money were handed over to the beneficiaries composed of women and children.

As early as 7 a.m. the indigents trooped to his residence and were warmly welcomed by Abe and his  mascot.

“Ya abla el Señor Jesus Cristo que debe dao kita man comparti el gracia diaton con el maga pobre hermanos y hermanas. Poreso cada año ta ase yo este cosa. Masquin diutay pero todo este ta sale na mi corazon,” Tan said in chabacano.

He said the sharing of his blessings is purely assistance to his constituents and nothing to do with politics.

During the opening of classes, Tan also gave free haircut to more than 500 pupils of the Sta. Maria Elementary School. — NS
