Guam - The Filipino Community of Guam collected money and items for the victims of Typhoon Sendong in Mindanao. Organization treasurer Leah-Beth Naholowaa said this morning's response was simply overwhelming.

"This is what it's all about, you know - brothers and sisters when they're in need, we come together to help each other. We collected today almost $2,000, and with the clothes, we've already made eight trips to the warehouse," she told KUAM News.

She also said that a large supply of medicine has been collected for our friends in the region. Naholowaa continued, "Matson gave us one container. We're going to fill it up and sort the donated goods out first and then fill it up, pack it good and then we're going to send it directly to Caguyan de Oro."
