Guam - The Chinese Chamber of Commerce has raised more than $15,000 in less than a week to assist the victims of Typhoon Sendong in the Philippines. The Filipino Community of Guam has been having a fundraising drive to help out our neighbors. 

Philippine vice consul general Maria Paz Cortez says the Guam community has shown an outpouring of support. "It's means a lot for us to know that everybody on Guam, Filipinos and non-Filipinos are doing their share and helping support the victims and the sending, whatever they can be it money or goods or even old clothes," she said.

Monetary donations are still being accepted at National Office Supply locations in Harmon and Tamuning. The Philippine Consulate Office is also collecting canned goods, medicine, blankets, bed sheets and used clothing.
