“Sa pamamagitan ng tanggapan ni Cong. Atty. Gil Acosta Jr, ang donasyong nagkakahalaga ng isang daang libo mula kay DS Loren Legarda ay ibinili ng bigas at canned goods at matagumpay na naipamahagi sa ating mga kabarangay,” Acosta said in his official Facebook page.

Acosta’s Office also received donations from House Speaker Lord Allan Jay Velasco, Cong. Mike Aglipay, and other members of the House of Representatives.
