San Pedro to distribute free school supplies to public and private school students

Aug 16, 2022 @ 9:25

San Pedro Mayor Art Mercado will finally fulfill his dream of distributing free school supplies to the city’s students.

Mercado announced on Facebook that kindergarten to senior high school students in the city’s public and private schools would get free bags and school supplies.

He said that after assuming his post as mayor, he and the City Accounting Office looked for budgetary allocations that he could use to provide these items to the students for free.

“Ito po ay dumaan sa tamang proseso, walang hokus-pokus. Walang palakasan. Ang pondo po ng taumbayan ay deretso at mararamdaman ng taumbayan,” he said.

He asked for understanding and patience as he said the school bags and school supplies would be distributed by batch.

He said there would just be a slight delay for some as more than 70,000 students are set to receive the free items.

55,000 of them would be from public schools and 15,000 from private schools.

He also said public school and private school teachers would receive free bags.

As for college students, Mercado said he would increase the number of beneficiaries of the city’s scholarship program.

He would also release a financial report during his state of the city address to mark his first 100 days as mayor, he said.
