Kapit Kamay: A Donation Drive was a successful program initiated by the CvSU- Trece Martires City Campus Alumni Association started on November 16, 2020. The program aimed to enable our alumni and the community to reach out to those in need, and specifically help the victims of fire and typhoon Ulysses and Rolly in Brgy. Sineguelasan, Bacoor City alongside the onslaught of the pandemic.
After the typhoon Rolly, a fire spread on a residential area in Barangay Sineguelasan at 10:46pm, November 1, 2020 leaving hundreds of families homeless. The fire lasted for hours and was declared out the next day, November 2 at around 1:28 a.m.
