QUEZON CITY, Dec. 15 (PIA) -- The Philippine Navy celebrated Christmas early by giving gifts to elderly residents and less fortunate families.

“This holiday season, your Navy commits to bring happiness to indigent families,” said Civil Military Operations Group-Philippine Navy Chief of Staff, Commander Ruel Nicolas.

Some 488 family food packs were distributed by the CMOG-PN and Mirasol Outreach Foundation, Inc. to the less fortunate residents of two barangays in Taguig City and to the abandoned elderlies being taken care of by San Lorenzo Ruiz Home of Elderly in Pasay City on December 14, 2020.

Residents of Barangay Fort Bonifacio received 250 gift packs and 300 McDonald’s meals while those in Western Bicutan got some 200 gift packs and 200 McDonald’s meals.

Meanwhile, 38 food packs and 10 Christmas presents were also turned over to the said care facility to bring joy to the homeless elderlies.

“We, in the Navy, also want to show our love and concern to the abandoned elderlies in the same manner we give joy to our parents and grandparents,” Nicolas added.

These community relations activities are in support of the Chief of the Navy's Christmas celebration program that aims to share the Christmas spirit to the less fortunate countrymen during this time of pandemic. (PIA-NCR)
