Dear Community Leaders and Friends,
It is with pride that I am letting everyone know that we had a successful Donation Drive for the Typhoon Yolanda
victims today @ VFW post 2498  Needham, MA. WE have channel 5 and Boston Globe reporters present
during our event.
We collected a total of 42 boxes that is going to the Philippines thru RDR  (20 boxes) and LBC cargo
(12 boxes). Our Filipino and American friends came to donate and helped packed these items.
RDR's will be sent to ABSCBN sagip kapamilya warehouse and the LBC's will be brought to the
Philippine Red Cross, we are sending all of these boxes free of charge thanks to Gras Awatin who coordinated
and connected us to both this cargo company.
I would like to announced that we are doing another Donation drive next week November 24th
@ the same place VFW Post 2498  20 Junction St. Needham Ma from 12noon to 5:00 pm again.
Everything collected will all be sent thru LBC (Philippine Red Cross) only, and as you know, we can send
