Guam - The Filipino Community of Guam is calling on the generosity of the community to help make their last disaster assistance drive a successful one. President Leah Beth Nahalowaa says they've received overwhelming support that has resulted in containers of donations of clothes, canned goods and medical supplies to send to the victims of Typhoon Sendong in the Philippines.
"This is not the only disaster that our brothers and sisters have helped from the tsunami in Japan and the previous typhoon in the Philippines, Typhoon Ondoy, we never stop giving, we're a community of givers and we're really, really grateful for that," she said.
The organization has collected $43,000 and donated almost half of that to the Ayuda Foundation so a California non-profit organization can match that amount. The drive will take place on Sunday, January 15 from 8:30 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon in front of Dr. Lim's and National Office Supply in Harmon.
