In the recent disaster caused by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda, the Los Angeles-based non-profit organization, People’s Community Organization for Reform and Empowerment (People’s CORE), The Park’s Finest, KmB/Pro-People Youth, Justice for Filipino American Veterans, and local community and youth organizations request your support to help the victims of Haiyan/Yolanda.
Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda was the strongest typhoon ever recorded to hit land, affecting over 40 provinces in the Visayas region with Tacloban bearing the full force of Haiyan/Yolanda. More than 11 million people have been affected across the country.
People’s CORE has launched the Sagip Tuluy-Tuloy Pilipinas (STP) Relief Drive, which translates to Continuous Help to the Philippines, an ongoing campaign to provide support for rehabilitation in areas currently affected by Haiyan/Yolanda and areas throughout the Philippines that continue to be affected by calamities and disasters. In partnership with The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Parent-Teacher Community Associations in Capiz, and the Archdiocese of Palo, Leyte, the STP Relief Drive is collecting both monetary and material donations. While monetary donations will be accepted for the relief drive on an ongoing basis, donations of material goods will be accepted until December 15, 2013. People’s CORE is a federally-registered, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) or non-profit organization. Monetary donations in the amount of $50 or more are tax-deductible. Please make checks payable to “People’s CORE” with “STP Relief Drive” on the memo.
We thank you for your consideration and support during this critical time of need. Please contact Christine or Diane at People’s CORE for any questions about the campaign at (213) 241-0995. Please feel free to visit www.peoplescore.net.
