Dear Community Leaders, Members and Friends,
Due to the recent calamities, ie., the flooding, super typhoon “Yolanda” (Haiyan as the International cyclone name) that caused destruction and huge devastation, landslides, and the earthquake that happened in the Philippines, I'm requesting not only our different
Fil-Am community clubs and organizations but also our Asian Friends and co-members of the Asian Pacific American Society to work with us and collect donations of clothes, shoes, canned goods, soap and other hygiene items, as well as cash (monetary donations) for our "kababayans" or Filipinos who were badly affected by the recent destruction and devastations of the Natural Disasters that happened in our country..
PAUCLA is a 501 (C) 3 registered organization and your donations maybe tax deductible on your tax returns.
It shall be greatly appreciated if you can help us spread the word to the other community leaders and members and encourage everyone to help us collect the donations.
For cash donations, please make your checks payable to PAUCLA for "Philippine Disaster Fund" and mail them to P.O. Box 2690, Gretna, La. 70054 or deposit the money directly to PAUCLA's Whitney Bank Account No. 0713-553-294.
For non-cash items, please contact any officer of PAUCLA and/or your organization. President who shall coordinate the donations with PAUCLA, the Umbrella organization of our Fil-Am community.
If you need clarifications or other details, please call me at (504) 710-3293 or email me at email@example.com as soon as you can.
Thank you so much...
Evelyn V. Escondo
