In an effort to help rebuild the war-ravaged city of Marawi, former members of the Ateneo Lady Eagles Women's Volleyball team and current BanKo Perlas players gave back by visiting the city and handing out some donations.
Hi everyone! Some of my teammates and fellow ateneans will fly to Marawi this coming weekend. We would like to ask a little help from you guys.— Alyssa Valdez (@AlyssaValdez2) January 30, 2018
People from Marawi are in need of BLANKETS. If you have any blanket to spare, I hope to see and meet you at Ally’s on Thursday, Feb 1, lunch and let us all gather and lend a hand to our brothers and sisters. THANK YOU.— Alyssa Valdez (@AlyssaValdez2) January 30, 2018
