However, the local chief executive noted that other students who are still in need of gadgets.

“Pero marami pa ring nangangailangan, tulad ng nasa private schls at state colleges. We still have seven tablets left and we are expecting another donor to give next week. Those who need tablets may request it with the Pasig Scholarship Office. Hindi po natin mabibigyan lahat. But will try our best,” said Sotto. (PIA-NCR)
