Guam - The Filipino Community of Guam is seeking the island's support to assist victims of Typhoon Sendong, which hit a portion of the Philippines over the weekend. The FCG started its disaster assistance drive today, seeking monetary donations and non-perishable good, clothing and other supplies.

FCG president Leah Beth Nahalowaa told KUAM News, "I'm appealing to everybody; I know it's Christmas and it's supposed to be joyous month, but something happened and we need to reach our again and help our brothers and sisters."

The death toll is close to 700 and authorities fear that there are hundreds more as recovery efforts continue in Mindanao, the second largest island in the country.  If you'd like to donate, items will are being accepted at National Office Supply, Seaside Market and Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz's Office.
