Following the widespread flooding triggered by monsoon rains, athletes in the Philippines join Globe Telecom in its drive to aid worst-hit localities
Around 6,480 flood victims in Marikina City, Rizal, and Bataan will be aided with food relief after some of the Philippines’ star athletes and Globe Telecom employees joined forces to host a goods drive for people affected by the recent monsoon rains.
Globe Telecom, through its nationwide volunteering program called Time Please, teamed up with members of Philippine Volcanoes, Lady Volcanoes, and Green Archers United FC (GAU), as well as Philippine Youth Tennis sensations Alex Eala and Miko Eala to provide food packs for the worst-hit communities.
“We are happy to be given the opportunity to help our community who were severely affected by the recent monsoon rains. We thank our Filipino athletes for joining us in providing immediate relief to the displaced communities,” said Yoly Crisanto, Chief Sustainability Officer and Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications at Globe. “We hope more Filipinos will be inspired to share an act of kindness for other people in need.”
The volunteering activity attended by some of the Philippines’ star athletes are among the key efforts initiated by Time Please. Two months into the program, volunteers have rendered over 10 million hours through Time Please, a collaboration of Globe and The Walt Disney Company Philippines.
