THE encore was bigger and wider in scope.
Phoenix Super LPG team handed out anew relief packages and health equipment to more barangays and health institutions around the National Capital Region from the collective monthly salaries of the Fuel Masters to help fellow Filipinos during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Only last month, the team also did the same worthy cause which benefitted barangays within the cities of San Juan and Pasig.
This time around, more people received assistance from the charity work which personally involved some players and personal staff of the franchise.
"The players wanted to be more involved this time rather than just donate money," Phoenix team manager Paolo Bugia said of the assistance done by the Fuel Masters over the weekend.
Recipients of sacks or rice and Personal Protective Equipment such as suits and face masks, were Barangay Pateros, Bilibid Hospital in Muntinlupa, and Ospital ng Makati.
Food packs on the other hand, were distributed at the 103 Military Barracks in Barangay Mangtanggol, Pateros and in various checkpoints located in Pasig, Quezon City, and San Juan.
The Fuel Masters also gave relief packages to daily wage employees of The Upper Deck, which were received from Bugia by owner Manny Mendoza. The training facility has been home to Phoenix since 2016.
Involved in the preparation of the food packages were Justine Chua, Dave Marcelo, and Calvin Abueva, while those who came along during the distribution assistance were JC Intal, JR Reyes, RJ Jazul, Bugia, team trainer Aldo Panlilio and liason officer Rudy Ocampo.(RG)
