Mayor James ‘Bong’ Gordon Jr. turned over two (2) jet-matic pumps, two (2) wheelchairs, an LCD projector and a Honda motorbike to several beneficiaries on September 22, 2008 at the flag-raising ceremony at the Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center.

The LCD projector was turned over by Mayor Gordon to Councilor Edwin Piano for the Technical Skills Training Program. The LCD Projector was a donation from the United Nations Populations Fund (UNFPA).

The LCD projector will aid in innovating the teaching approach and methods in skills training.

The UNFPA, through City Representative Dyesebel Dado, extended a two-year grant to help the city in the Reproductive Health area.

Meanwhile, Balikatan Ladies president Ledi Payumo received two (2) jet-matic pumps for the residents of Purok 3, Santol Compound, New Cabalan.

Richard Espinosa of New Cabalan and Bernardo Poblete of Barangay Mabayuan each received wheelchairs.

Mayor Gordon also announced a plan about helping the PWDs of the city to build their own wheelchairs.

“Let’s produce that with the welders,” said Mayor Gordon. “Maganda na magproduce tayo nung matibay at pwedeng pambasketball na wheelchairs.”

On the other hand, the Criminal Detection and Intelligence Group (CIDG) received a Honda Motorbike from Mayor Gordon. The motorcycle was received by Supt. Maristelo Manalo, CIDG Olongapo head.

‘We want CIDG to be part of Olongapo City especially with the anti-nude and anti-prostitution campaign,” Mayor Gordon said. “At sana ang CIDG ay tulungan tayo at tanggalin ang mga establihments na may mga nude shows dahil pinipilit nating mawala yan, dapat i-flush out yang problema na ‘yan.”
