NLEX donates P150K to Odette victims in Visayas, Mindanao


NLEX has formally turned over its donation for Typhoon Odette victims.

The team led the cheque presentation during halftime of its PBA Governors’ Cup duel with Phoenix Super LPG on Christmas Day at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.

A total of P150,000 was pooled by the Road Warriors.

The ball club initially planned to stage a Christmas party, but ultimately decided to donate the funds supposed to be used for the celebration for relief efforts.

NLEX gave the donation through the Alagang Kapatid Foundation, Inc.

“Napagusapan po ng team, ng management namin, ng pamilya namin na ‘yung gagastusin sa Christmas party ay ibibigay na lang po at idonate sa mga kapatid po natin sa Visayas at Mindanao,” head coach Yeng Guiao said.

AKFI was represented by Executive Director Menchie Silvestre, Communication Officer Kirby Mariano, and Manager of Internal Services Beth Quijano.

PLDT-SMART Foundation President Maria Esther Santos was also there.

In the rites as well were NLEX’s Senior Manager for Community Engagement Cherry Dela Rea, together with Road Warriors team manager Ronald Dulatre.

PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial was also in attendance.
