Pamaskong Handog Para Sa Mahihirap

The Pamaskong Handog Para Sa Mahihirap is the city’s annual gift-giving program of the City Government of Urdaneta with support from the various sectors and stakeholders. Launched in the 1980s, it was a brainchild of then Mayor Amadeo R. Perez Jr. whose desire was to share the joys of the holiday season with the less fortunate families of Urdaneta.

 

Every December, thousands of indigent families from the 34 barangays receive family packs from the City Government of Urdaneta and a counterpart gift pack from the sponsoring groups to help bring cheers for the Christmas season.

 

This 2016, Mayor Amadeo Gregorio “Bobom” Perez IV further increased the number of recipients to some 5,030 indigents.
