Phoenix Super LPG continues to cast a ray of hope amidst the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

The Fuel Masters pledged a portion of their May salary for the second wave of their donations for those affected, as well as those bravely helping in the fight against the dreaded virus.

The PBA ball club had also donated part of their salaries last April for purchase of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and relief packages, which were given to the cities of Pasig and San Juan.

This time, though, the team was more hands-on. Several players and team personnel helped facilitate the preparation and delivery of food, relief packages, and PPEs to various institutions in the metro.

The food packs were cooked in star forward Calvin Abueva’s Dampa Ni The Beast restaurant in San Juan.

“The players wanted to be more involved this time rather than just donate money,” Phoenix team manager Paolo Bugia told PBA.ph of the assistance from the team over the weekend.

The Fuel Masters donated food packs to people manning the checkpoints in Pasig, San Juan, and Quezon City, and also to the 103rd Military Barracks in Brgy. Magtanggol, Pateros.

Food packs plus PPEs, on the other hand, were given to the Ospital ng Makati and to the New Bilibid Prison Hospital in Muntinlupa. PPEs and sacks of rice were donated to Pateros.

The team also provided relief packages to daily wage staffers of The Upper Deck Sports Center in Pasig. The training facility has been the home of the Fuel Masters since 2016.
