The Bacoor Strikers, through their team owners Congressman Strike Revilla and his wife Chaye Revilla, are doing their part to battle this COVID-19 pandemic.

On Wednesday, the Strikers aided the Philippine Army frontliners at the Fort Bonifacio in Taguig with sacks of rice and canned goods.

The team sent the donations to its very own player now turned frontliner Private Class Eric Acuña, who then distributed the goods to his fellow frontliners.

"Malaking tulong talaga siya lalo para dito sa mga tropa sa Army," said Acuña, who played 29 games for the Strikers during the Chooks-to-Go Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Cup.

The Strikers, however helpful to the Army, are more focused on helping Acuña, who have yet to return home and be with his family since the Philippine government implemented the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) last March 15.

"Lagi rin akong kinakamusta ni Cong. Strike kung may kailangan ako eh” bared the 5-foot-8 Acuña, who enlisted in the Philippine Army last 2015.

"Sobrang blessed ako kaso hindi lang sa loob ng court nila ako pinapahalagahan, tinuturing na rin talaga nila kaming pamilya. Sobrang malaking blessing talaga sila Cong. Strike at ma’am Chaye sakin kasi laging silang nandiyan kahit wala na kaming laro."

Acuña and the Strikers reached the South Division Lakan Cup Semifinals, but lost to the Basilan Steel in the best-of-three series, 2-1.
