UAAP’s Board of Managing Directors, headed by Season 83 and 84 president Nongnong Calanog, have decided to forego their annual Christmas party. Instead, they used were able to raise PHP 200,000 to buy goods.
The packs were prepared by the student-athletes of Adamson University still stranded in the campus.
All in all, a total of 390 families in Payatas, Bagong Silangan, and Montalban were the beneficiaries of the drive.
Other members of the league’s BMD are La Salle’s Edwin Reyes (Season 83 and 84 Treasurer); Adamson’s Fr. Aldrin Suan, CM (Vice President) and Fr.
