Valdez, VCGB distribute 2,000 PPEs as drive continues with help of celebs


Fresh from its highly-successful volleyball bundle raffles, Volleyball Community Gives Back is not yet done in raising funds for the frontliners battling against COVID-19, as it will be raffling off memorabilia from famous showbiz celebrities.

Among the pre-loved items which the celebrities will give away from this campaign are Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s Converse sneakers, actor Dingdong Dantes’ motorcycle helmet, and young star Kathryn Bernardo’s two pairs of Sunnies sunglasses.

Derek Ramsay, Jennylyn Mercado, Rovilson Fernandez, Angelica Panganiban, Marco Gumabao, Mimiyuuh, Elisse, Hashtag Luke, and Paulo Arvie are also taking part of the Celebrity Bundle raffle, with all the proceeds to be dedicated in producing more personal protective equipment (PPEs).

Led by Alyssa Valdez, Charo Soriano, Amy Ahomiro, Gretchen Ho, Aby Maraño, and Amanda Villanueva, VCGBPH has produced 2,000 PPEs which have already distributed to Sultan Kudarat, Quezon Medical Center Batangas, Aklan, Puerto Galera, Cebu, Northern Mindanao Medical Center in Cagayan de Oro, Muntinlupa, and Quezon City.

This was made possible from the #ServeOurFrontliners: Raffle for Heroes campaign, where memorabilia from the volleyball players — including jerseys, training shirts, shoes and a coffee table book — were given away for the winners.

“We are continuously producing PPEs to serve our frontliners and we plan to keep on donating them through the referral hospitals in various provinces as well as here in Metro Manila,” said VCGBPH.

All raffle items will be shipped once the lockdown has been lifted.

Donations can be sent to Ryan Sordan through BPI bank account 8069 0632 77, GCash at 0917-5003390, and PayMaya at 0917-5003390.

In the #CareForAll fund drive for those volleyball game day personnel who were affected by the suspension and cancellation of leagues due to the COVID-19 pandemic, VCGBPH has already distributed care packs to about 175 families.

“The list of personnel and officials that need assistance are increasing and we are preparing for the third wave of distribution already.”
