This is a Public Group so anyone can ask to join.


We will accept

Please join us in helping: Many of our friends and colleagues lost books, personal mementos, artworks, even bodies of their own work in the fire that struck the UP Faculty Center. We are collecting books for the English Department. Copies of canon works, literary classics, popular classics, books on teaching and writing creative nonfiction, fiction, literature, grammar, language, and so on are very welcome.
We’re in touch with a few faculty members–who are understandably in shock and grieving right now–and we’ll make sure they get your donations. PM us here.
If you’re from another affected department (Speech/Theater, European Languages, Filipino, Art Studies, Social Studies, PolSci, History), please do start a collection for them as well. They will need it. Thank you

Lalo na yung mga “sobrang luma at memorabilla” level na pinaphotocopy ng mga sir at maam natin para maging readings sa klase. Mga tipong alam nating, sila ang nagpundar para magkakopya nito at maibahagi sa ating mga estudyante. Time to give back kila ser at mam.
