Adamson University’s Softball Team are showing that they are champions both on and off the diamond.
Last weekend, the Lady Falcons left stranded in the dormitories of the school decided to band together and pack goods that will be distributed in various parts of Manila.
And this is their way of supporting the Vincentian priests’ Charity Over Virus Indifference and Despair (COVID) and Facemasks Cover Your Face Not Your Hearts program.
“Sa part namin, kahit small things na puwede kaming makatulong sa mga pamilya rito sa Metro Manila na nangangailangan, lalo na sa panahong ito na kailangan natin ang isa’t isa,” said decorated Adamson head coach Ana Santiago.
“We are very happy to be part ng program na ito, at patuloy namin gagawin ito sa abot ng makakaya namin.”
The Lady Falcons were supposed to begin their bid for a 10th straight UAAP Softball crown last February 17. However, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the enhanced community quarantine afterward, the tournament was suspended.
“May mga players kami na hindi nakauwi sa kanilang probinsya kasi nagmahal ‘yung pamasahe, at ‘yung iba naman inabot na ng community quarantine,” shared Santiago.
“Kaya gagawin namin ‘yung time na ito para makatulong at magdasal para sa bayan.”
As of March 23, 2020, 462 people have been tested positive for COVID-19.
