Area Groups Donate to Philippines Relief Fund

phillippine relief

The devastation left by Typhoon Haiyan shocked and saddened the world. Donations have flooded in, and the desire to help has been made very clear.

Two local groups recently took it upon themselves to support the relief effort.

Last week, Medford’s Thang Long stopped by Cambridge with a check for more than $15,000 raised at an IBEW Local 103 gathering in Dorchester. A Vietnam native, Long previously sought refuge in the Philippines and felt compelled to give back after the typhoon.

Another group wanted to get involved, too.

Nhom Huong Thien, a Lynnfield group of individuals that gathers for friendship and support of people in their homelands, raised more than $2,000 for the Typhoon Relief effort, and brought the donation to our Northeast Chapter.

Thank you to everyone for your support. The effort in the Philippines continues.
