The Muntinlupa City government through its Public Employment Service Office (PESO) announced that a mass activation of qualified Grab delivery riders will be held next month.
This is part of the “Deliver to Recover Program” by the city government and Grab Philippines to help displaced workers and public transportation drivers in Muntinlupa who were affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
According to PESO, the mass activation will be held on December 1 to 4 at the Colegio de Muntinlupa in Barangay Sucat. PESO is inviting Muntinlupa residents to apply for the special program to become Grab Food and Grab Express Delivery riders. To qualify, applicants should be 21 to 50 years old, residents of Muntinlupa, have a smartphone and driver’s license. They also need to present documents to prove ownership of motorcycles, authorization letter for its use or notarized deed of sale and repossession certificate.
In addition, a stimulus package amounting to P7,500 consisting of Grab uniforms, food insulated box, P2,500 worth of e-wallet credit, and P2,500 cash assistance as initial cash revolving fund will be given to qualified applicants.
Muntinlupa is the only LGU partner of Grab Philippines in Metro Manila with a stimulus package for its beneficiaries. Current Grab riders and those with pending applications are disqualified from participating in the program.
Last November 6, Mayor Jaime Fresnedi led the launching of the “Deliver to Recover” livelihood program and awarding of packages to the first batch of beneficiaries together with Rep. Ruffy Biazon and Grab Philippines representatives Jackson Tan and Jeanine Tadique. Seven additional beneficiaries also received their stimulus packages on November 25.
The city government entered into a partnership with Grab Philippines for the registration to the latter’s delivery service of 500 city residents who have lost their jobs during the community quarantine, including returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).
“We recognize the challenges faced by Muntinlupa residents whose livelihoods were affected by the lockdown and we will continue to assist them through various socio-economic projects,” said Fresnedi.
