The Ayuda Foundation has received a donation from the Pacific Daily News for the foundation's CNMI typhoon relief drive.
The PDN donated bottled drinking water, buckets, and other essential items which are sorely needed in the CNMI which is still recovering from the devastation wrought by Supertyphoon Yitu last month.

The foundation continues to solicit donations from individuals and companies that want to help out the victims of Supertyphoon Yutu in the CNMI.
Items that are especially needed in the CNMI at this time are bottled drinking water, canned goods, instant soup, tarps, rope, mosquito coils, nets, mosquito repellants, first aid kits, flashlights, batteries, tools, nails, machetes, butane stoves, butane cartridges, adult and children diapers, paper towels, baby wipes, paper plates, cleaning supplies, cots, sleeping bags, chainsaws, and other items needed for living under rough conditions.
Clothing donations are being discouraged at this time as they take up valuable storage space that can be better utilized for more essential items.
In-kind donations can be dropped off at the Ayuda Foundation’s main CNMI typhoon donation collection and loading center located at the Triple J facility in Upper Tumon (former Foremost).
The Ayuda Foundation is also asking for volunteers who can help sort, box, and load items received at the foundation’s main CNMI typhoon donation collection and loading center located at the Triple J facility in Upper Tumon.
Those who want to volunteer can report to the Triple J typhoon relief goods loading site Monday-Friday from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
