It has been said before: Sports is transformative. It has the power to change lives. Regardless of appearance, background, or heritage.
On Sunday, the Chery Tiggo Crossovers made the most out of their short break in the PVL Second All-Filipino Conference by conducting an outreach event.
Mylene Paat, Pauline Gaston, Jen Nierva, Cess Robles, Jasmine Nabor, and the rest of the squad went to the Missionaries of the Poor (MOP) in San Andres, Manila for a feeding program.
The Crossovers, including the team's entire staff, had a special day in spending time with underprivileged youth and persons with disabilities, reminding everyone that we can all reach out in our own little ways.
"Not only do we love volleyball, but we love giving back and lending a helping hand to those in need. A big thank you to everyone who took part in such a fruitful activity away from the court," said Cherry Tigo, which partnered with Kawa Pilipinas, in a post on Instagram.
It also shared pictures showing how fulfilled and honored the Crossovers were in helping uplift the lives of others, even for just a day.
Nabor, meanwhile, shared a heartwarming video of the feeding program on Instagram.
"Truly a heartwarming experience," wrote the setter.
Chery Tiggo players are not new to paying it forward, with Paat holding her first outreach program in her hometown of Bani, Pangasinan last April. Gaston, Nierva, and Laure have also joined or organized other social aid events in the past.
Bless their hearts.
