Rodriguez organizes PI flood relief

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr. has launched relief efforts to collect monetary donations to help flood victims in the Philippines. Heavy rains have battered Manila and nearby provinces causing massive flooding and leaving several people dead.  About 125,000 families were affected by the flooding, with 9,000 families currently taking shelter at temporary evacuation centers.  

Senator Rodriguez in conjunction with Filipino Community of Guam board chairman Emelio Uy are requesting the community come together and donate any amount for the Philippines flood victims. Proceeds from relief efforts will be used to purchase the necessary supplies needed for victims.   

Cash and checks are now being accepted at the senator's office, Royal Bics in Tamuning or at any National Office Supply store.  Checks should be made payable to The Filipino Community of Guam with a notation "August Flood Victims."
