MANOLO FORTICH, Bukidnon - Around 800 gift packs containing food, clothes, and toys fell from the sky as military members dressed as Santa Claus dropped the goodies to seven far flung barangays.

The Santa soldiers were not on a sleigh but distributed gifts via a Huey helicopter Wednesday morning.

Aside from the distribution of goods donated by local government units and private entities, the 1st Battalion Special Forces' aerial gift-giving activity also showcased the military's capability to respond to air-borne operations, said Battalion Commander, Lt. Col. Peter Edwin Navarro.
