According to Mr. Vince R.

The kits include a pair of arm sleeves, a towel and a shirt given to TODA Presidents which will then be distributed to their respective members.
Engr. Ramirez also facilitated and helped in the distribution while he also emphasized the renewal of Mayor’s Permit for TODAs is extended until the 15th of February to give the municipality’s tricycle operators chance to process their renewal.
