Filipino community fundraising to help flood victims

  • Oct. 23, 2009 8:00 a.m.

Submitted by the Filipino community-On Sept. 26, Typhoon Onday hit the Philippines with a devastating blow. Two of our local Filipinos have families in the Philippines who have been greatly affected. There are hundreds of thousands of people there who have lost everything and are in a state of hopelessness and peril. We here on the Charlottes can show how big our hearts are by reaching out to those who are hurting and devastated. The Filipino community will be holding a fundraising dinner on Sunday, Oct. 25, at 6 pm in the Queen Charlotte community hall. Donations will be collected with the help of Pastor Rob Williamson and the Bethel Assembly. All money raised will reach those in need through ERDO – Emergency Relief and Development Overseas. We are trying to help all we can and we are asking for your help to reach those in need. We look forward to seeing you and your family at the dinner. The group is also accepting donations of used clothing to send to the Phillipines. Drop off donations at R&S Smoothies in Queen Charlotte. The deadline is October 30.
