THE Rollers Basketball Club is grateful to Dong A Wholesale for providing relief packages to the players and their families on April 22 at the Koblerville Gym.

Rollers coach Joe Diaz said he received a message from Dong A Wholesale's Jenny Lee, who is also a coach for the women's team, saying she wanted to help the players and their parents.

Diaz said, “That’s a big help for our Rollers family during these hard times. I was so happy for the donation.”

Dong A Wholesale donated over 100 cases of food and other items to 86 families at a drive-thru site.

"I wanted to give back to the Rollers Team because they gave me an opportunity to grow and connect with the Rollers community, basketball players, parents, and the coaches,” Lee said.

She added that Dong A Wholesale also provided 350 relief packages to Covid-19 front liners, including first responders, police officers, and Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. staff.

Dong A Wholesale likewise donated face shields to the stores on island. “Cashiers, stockers, and checkers all need protective gear,” Lee said, adding that once the shipment arrives, they will donate face masks to front liners.

“We are so blessed to have these donations from Dong A Wholesale especially in this time of need,” Rollers coach Joe Diaz said. “I know all of us are in this pandemic together so if a company reaches out to us we will also lend a hand any way we can.”

Diaz would also like to thank volunteers Terry Diaz, RJ Manzano, Ben Teregeyo, Chioni Dela Cruz, Derrick Atalig, and Jenny Lee herself for helping out with the distribution of the relief packages.
