Basketball recreational leagues across Metro Manila lent a helping hand to those badly affected by the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) due to the Covid-19 outbreak, especially frontliners and sports workers whose incomes were halted.

The Kings of the Court (KOTC) have launched their campaign, dubbed “It’s your time to shine.” For only P700, one can have a customized sports artwork. Donors may also choose an artwork based on their preferred sport. The donor can use the artwork as a social media profile photo and can be given as a souvenir to a frontliner.

Hoops Nation Manila is collaborating with Hoops Nation design team, PEXBALL League (Pinoy Exchange Basketball League), and Buhay Bola Basketball Community in raising funds for their chosen beneficiaries, with their campaign “ALL IN TOGETHER United We Fight Covid-19 An Artwork For A Cause.”

By donating P750, each donor will get a Top Class Artwork, which the donor can use as social media profile photo; an exclusive ALL IN TOGETHER SHIRT (to be distributed after the lifting of the ECQ; and an ALL IN Together NOW sublimated jersey for the first 50 donors courtesy of campaign partner, DJ Sports Wear.

Another basketball league giving a valuable assist is the Inter-Color Basketball League, with its campaign “IBL Bayanihan” Its founder, Jayson Moises, has been raising funds and distributing relief goods to different communities.

As reported earlier, LGR Sports Wear and LGR Hoops League have shifted their operations from sports apparel making to PPE production, and has partnered with different organizations, most notably the Dominican Province of the Philippine through its Justice and Peace arm.
