To all BCWD concessionaires, we would like to emphasize that the District will be giving away assorted grocery items on March 28 and 31, 2016 or until supply lasts. Aside from the groceries, anniversary t-shirts will also be given away to the first 42 paying customers on March 28, 2016. Concessionaires who will be paying on that date are advised to come early for them to be able to get any number from the first 42 priority numbers.


Also, a Bloodletting Activity will be conducted at the BCWD Conference Room in coordination with the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) on March 28, 2016. The Bloodletting Activity will start from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Those concessionaires who are interested to donate their blood for a cause can go to the Conference Room and donate some blood. First 40 donors will receive bloodletting t-shirts.
