Representatives from the Guam Economic Development Authority, the Guam Visitors Bureau, senior staff at the Governor's Office, a representative from the Legislature and the Guam Judiciary along with the Mayor's Council and First Lady Christine Calvo will be working together to help collect funds to help these victims. 

The group met in Adelup Monday afternoon to discuss this approach. Through speaking with the Consul General of Japan in Guam Yoshiyuki Kimura, monetary donations are needed for relief efforts. The Consul General has said that such funds should be funneled through the American Red Cross.
