Donations update

As we had gleefully posted in our last newsletter issuethe Jan. 25 fair had raised $10,030 at night’s end. This is before collectibles, Filipino Night Out with the Chicago Bulls ticket sales, online donations, and other donations. 

We are now up to $10,607!

Maraming salamat for all your support!  

ILPRO is still accepting donations online through the two accounts set up during the two recently-concluded fundraisers. Please click on the appropriate link below:

Monetary donations can also be sent through the mail to:

PACF IL PRO (Philippine American Cultural Foundation – Illinois Philippine Recovery Operations)
c/o Ruben Salazar
1705 Clemens Road
Darien, IL 60561

We received an e-mail not too long ago asking us if we also took in donations in-kind. We currently don’t have the capacity to take in donations of clothing, food, supplies and medicine. But please take a moment to visit the Philippine Embassy’s Web site for leads and tips on how to help in-kind.

We face a long road ahead of us to recovery, but no help is too small. Maraming salamat for keeping typhoon-affected areas of the Philippines in your thoughts and prayers.
