Nueva Ecija, Davao Occi add to MPBL day-to-day staff relief

In this time of medical crisis, and with league operations at a halt, the teams from the Chooks-to-Go Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League are showing that they are one squad in this battle.

Team owners already gave financial support to the league’s employees last April 12.

Moreover, Davao Occidental-Cocolife team owner Claudine Bautista has provided further financial assistance to the MPBL staff, while Nueva Ecija owners Bong and Rian Cuevas donated 100 sacks of rice.

“Mr. Cuevas and the Mayor commiserate with the people in these trying times,” said Jai Reyes, team manager of Nueva Ecija. “They want to help ease the suffering of the people.”

Zamboanga-Family’s Brand Sardines also gave the league’s staff and referees a box of different variants of sardines.

“Gusto natin pasalamatan ‘yung mga ka-liga natin, ‘yung mga team owners na nag-donate doon sa daily employees natin. Dito mo makikita ‘yung bayanihan. Nakita nila na kawawa ‘yung mga kasamahan natin, kaya tinulungan nila agad,” expressed league commissioner Kenneth Duremdes during an Instagram Live session with Cedelf Tupas.

With all the uncertainties surrounding the Chooks-to-Go sponsored league due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Duremdes assured its fans that the MPBL will be back.

“Huwag po kayong bumitaw, at asahan ninyong we will come back stronger and better,” he said.

“Ito ang pangako ni Sen. Manny Pacquiao, lalong pagagandahin natin ang liga dahil alam namin na it somehow touches your lives and your communities.”
