The Ayuda Foundation continues to receive donations from the Guam Daily Post for the foundation's CNMI typhoon relief drive.
Yesterday, a delegation from the Guam Daily Post led by no less than Post CEO and Editor-in-Chief Mindy Aguon delivered the Post’s latest batch of donations for Ayuda’s CNMI typhoon relief drive.
The Post delegation yesterday donated 200 care buckets, each with a variety of goods ranging from canned and dry foods, cleaning supplies, gloves, tools, etc. They also delivered cases of bottled water, cases of diapers, and bags of new towels and beddings.
Last week, the Post already donated bottled water, food, butane fuel, tarps, paper towels, and toilet paper.
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.
