Far Eastern University student-athletes like Ino Comboy of basketball and volleyball stars Jude Garcia and Celine Domingo have extended their help in the school’s relief operations amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The three varsity players are among those who donated their jerseys for the "May Twenty Ako" fundraiser -- a drive that is raising funds to purchase personal protective equipment for medical frontliners.
Besides this, student-leaders from the Morayta-based institution have organized drives in their respective areas.
A Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines awardee back in 2013, John Michael Lava is among the organizers of fund-raising drive PAKIG-AMBIT. PAKIG-AMBIT is an initiative of Cebu-based accountants to provide PPEs to medical frontliners in the province.
On the other hand, former president of the FEU Tamaraw Volunteers John Paul Uminga is also raising funds for the medical staff of Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital.
Besides this, Patrick Manuel, FEU's Entrepreneurship Club president, has decided to give back to street vendors, pedicab drivers, jeepney drivers, and stranded dormers with his Pantawid COVID Project.
Manuel has been gathering funds and donations and is personally distributing the relief goods in Morayta.
