CJ Perez is the latest PBA player to extend a helping hand to the league personnel affected by the suspension of the season due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In a short yet meaningful post on social media platform Instagram on Thursday morning, the 2019 Rookie of the Year wrote that he is donating Php 25,000 to the affected employees.
“I’m donating 25,000 to our PBA Family,” the Columbian Dyip star wrote through his official IG account @cjayp7.
The post comes with a photo that says: “First off, thank you to the PBA brotherhood for stepping up. To all the game-day employees, we’re all in this together.
“This is bigger than basketball.”
Perez is the latest to pledge a donation to personnel who are paid on a per-game basis such as statisticians, table officials, entertainment personnel, parking, and operations personnel.
The veteran bench tactician, meanwhile, has pledged to donate PHP 100,000. His goal is to cover at least two months’ worth of wages of the personnel affected by the season’s suspension.
