Adamson University's doors are always open for healthcare workers in neighboring Philippine General Hospital.
The San Marcelino-based school has welcomed with open arms around 30 frontliners from the national hospital just 1.2km away.
As such, PGH's healthcare workers could call the blue and white school their temporary home through the continuing COVID-19 crisis.
"24 to 30 PGH staff ang nakatira dun ngayon. We're giving them accommodation and food," Fr. Aldrin Suan, CM, their representative to the UAAP Board of Managing Directors, said, referring to the dormitory of their women's volleyball team.
Alongside that, Adamson has also provided two of its buses to help transport staff of Makati Medical Center.
One bus has Paliparan-Molino Road in Cavite as its destination while the other bus is headed to LRT-Monumento Station in Caloocan.
Meanwhile, the Falcons have more than 60 student-athletes who remain inside campus due to the enhanced community quarantine.
Among them are members of the softball, baseball, pep squad, women's basketball, and football teams who are doing their part in packing relief goods to be distributed to communities in need in Manila, Paranaque, and Valenzuela.
"Student-athletes here themselves took the initiative to be in charge sa packaging," Suan said. "Sila talaga yung nagli-lead sa donation drive natin."
