Farm Fresh-Letran returned to the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center on Saturday morning.
But it was not for a basketball game.
The Squires, or Milkers gave back to the Kapampangans affected by Super Typhoon Egay by distributing 1,750 packs of relief goods to help in the recovery of barangays San Pedro and Sto. Nino.
“Our sports teams not only aim for victory on the field, but they also embody a fundamental value: helping in times of need,” said Frank Lao, owner of Farm Fresh and Strong Group, which supports the Letran juniors basketball program.
“It’s about instilling in our young athletes the importance of being compassionate and making a positive impact beyond the game. Together, we cultivate a spirit of unity and service that goes hand in hand with our pursuit of excellence.”
“At Letran, we believe that true greatness is not solely measured by victories on the court or field, but by the compassion and charity we extend to those in need. Charity stands as a cornerstone of our varsity teams, reminding our student-athletes that their role transcends sports,” said Fr. Vic Calvo, OP, Colegio de San Juan de Letran athletic director.
“Through their dedication to service, they exemplify the Arriba spirit of Letran, where character, integrity, and community intertwine to create a legacy that extends far beyond the arena.”
